Good Afternoon

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.
