Telecommunication offences are the same throughout Australia and are governed by the Criminal Code Act. This is a response to the changing shape of our societal structure and a recognition of developing technologies that allow communication and information to be transmitted over vast spaces very quickly.
As a result, telecommunications offences can carry very serious penalties upon conviction. A telecommunications offence can be committed through a variety of means, including, but not limited to: telephone calls, text messages and communication via social media sites and applications.
If you have been charged with a telecommunications offence it is imperative that you seek expert legal advice promptly.
