Have Australian Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi, I am Leon, a NSW Solicitor. I will be assisting you with your question. If you choose a telephone call, you will be charged an additional fee.
It is now becoming common practice when it is for a mention (a short appearance to see how the matter is progressing) to have a video link fro the prison as it is cheaper than transporting them to court.
Also it is better for the person in custody as they are not stuck in a small holding cell in court all day.
But this is common.
If bail is granted then they will be released form the prison that date.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If you wish a phone call please elect for one but be aware it will be an additional fee. If there is nothing further thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
