Bail Applications in Western Australia


If you have been charged with an offence, you are presumed to be innocent until it is proven that you are guilty. As a result, you have a qualified right to be free until a Court decides whether you are guilty. In Western Australia, there are some situations where you might be kept in custody (on remand) until you are required to appear in Court and answer to the charges, and in these situations bail will be refused. For example, the police may suspect that you will not attend your scheduled Court hearing and a decision can be made to keep you in police custody until that time.
