The law was created to protect every individual and to issue penalties and / or punishment to those who perform criminal acts. Finding yourself on the wrong side of the law is a stressful experience, so having a knowledgable and experienced criminal lawyer on your side to give you the right advice is vital.
In Australia, the criminal law has subtle differences in each of the six states and territories. The Commonwealth also has a criminal law that applies to certain crimes. This means that a crime performed in a certain state may have different repercussions than a similar crime performed in another state. However, some states have come up with common law acts that more-or-less provide fixed penalties for certain crimes committed within their jurisdictions.
If, for some unfortunate circumstance, you find yourself on the wrong side of the law and are facing charges by Victoria Police, it is best that you elect to be represented in court by a good criminal lawyer such as Hayden Legro. Hayden, with over twenty years experience in this area, will review your case and provide you with the best advice on who to proceed.
