Customer: Victoria
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: Yes a breach on IVO while on 3 month suspended sentence.

Hello
You should be able to get a legal aid lawyer on the seriousness of the offence alone. It is means tested, so that will be a significant factor as to the seriousness of the offence and likelihood of a custodial sentence if found guilty.

I suggest contacting legal aid immediately.
