Breaching Apprehended Domestic Violence Order ADVO: Police v MN

Breach AVO  assault occasioning actual bodily harm

Assault - Criminal Defence SolicitorsMN faced charges for breaching an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order. Given the alleged breach was one of violence, MN faced a full time custodial sentence should the prosecution prove the offences. For this reason, police refused bail.

MN applied for bail at the Local Court. If he remained in custody until the time of his hearing, he would have lost his full time job. With two young children to look after and a defence to prepare, it would have been very difficult for him. Note that breaches of ADVOs get treated seriously by police and the courts.
