Throughout Angela has been the consummate professional. She maintained a calm, yet strong demeanour remained informative and completely open in her communication and took complete ownership of the situation. We felt confident we finally had an advocate to steer us out of the nightmare we were in, and she did so with great respect and sincerity. I cannot speak more highly of Angela. She has literally rescued our family from what looked very much like a hopeless future.
Words can’t describe how grateful I am to Trudie Cameron being my solicitor and to Andrew Tiedt presenting my case in the court. They both have been very supportive and amazingly professional and effective. I’ve got an absolutely fantastic outcome I couldn’t even dream about.
Soon after meeting Andrew I knew he was the solicitor I wanted to handle my matter. He immediately sprang into action which brought me stability and hope during a tumultuous time in my life. Andrew was never afraid to give me straight answers to my tough questions which is a true mark of integrity. He is clearly at ease in the court environment and I believe his calm and measured demeanour went a long way to helping me secure the best result from my day in court. I would certainly recommend you approach Andrew if you need assistance.
"Andrew Tiedt was very professional and considerate to personal circumstances and gave sound advice that resulted in the best outcome possible. Highly recommended."
Bail Conditions in the ACT
Courts are often more likely to grant bail if the risks associated with granting bail can be protected against (mitigated) by the imposition of bail conditions. Successful negotiations about bail conditions can often mean that prosecutors do not oppose bail, which makes it much more likely that bail will be granted.
It is the task of your lawyer to formulate conditions that address the court’s concerns. The conditions must be:
- proportionate to the alleged offence;
- appropriate to meet the perceived risks of releasing the person;
- no more onerous than necessary; and
- reasonably practicable.
Examples of bail conditions that a court can impose are:
That the accused person do or refrain from doing anything. For example, a condition may be imposed that the accused abstain from alcohol or abide by a curfew.
That the accused not contact certain persons, usually the alleged victim or the alleged co-offenders.
That the accused agree not to go to certain places.
That the accused agree to live at a certain address.
That the accused agree to be at a certain address at certain times.
That the accused report to police at certain times.
Surrender of passport
That the accused surrender their passport to police so that they cannot leave the country while on bail.
That the accused or an acceptable person (often a family member) offer to forfeit a certain amount of money in the event that the accused does not attend court as required.
That an acceptable person provide a written acknowledgment to the court that they regard the accused person as a responsible person who is likely to comply with his or her bail acknowledgment.
That suitable arrangements be made for the accommodation of the accused person before they are released on bail.
That the accused to comply with one or more specified kinds of police directions, such as random urine testing. This condition can only be imposed at the request of the prosecutor.
