Bail Applications in New South Wales
If you have been charged with an offence in New South Wales, the presumption is that you are innocent until you are proven guilty in a Court of law. As a result, you have a right to be free until a Court determines whether you are guilty. There are, however, some situations where you might be kept in custody (on remand) until you are required to appear in Court to answer your charges. For example, there may be a suspicion that you will abscond and a decision might be made to keep you in police custody until that time.
