During that time, we will continue to represent you and prepare your case to be able to assist you at trial. There are some delays currently caused by the coronavirus, meaning that your trial may take slightly longer to be heard.
If you are refused bail by the police, you would appear before the next available court. Currently, this is a virtual court, and usually your case is heard either the same day or the next day. A bail application would be made on your behalf if you so wish, and the court will make a decision as to whether you are bailed for any further hearings to take place or whether you will remain in custody. Further bail applications can be made if you are remanded in custody.
We will ensure that we discuss your case at every stage with you and keep you up to date.
