Melinda routinely appears for people who have been accused of breaching offences and Court Orders including:
- Community Corrections Orders
- Suspended Sentences
- Intervention Orders
If you have been charged with a breaching offence, you need to contact lawyer immediately, because often the penalties increase significantly, particularly when there has been non-compliance with a Court Order or a breach of parole.
Melinda will first consider whether you have actually breached the order and, if so, how you breached the order. Melinda will also consider whether the breach itself will attract a term of imprisonment as a separate penalty and whether you should plead guilty or not guilty to the breach.
Melinda will advise you on your options such as being placed back on the order, cancelling the order, extending the order or re-sentencing. Having an expert represent you in these hearings can often be the difference between going to jail or remaining in the community.
