Supreme Court bail granted despite client’s threats to assault and “skull drag” if released on bail

Our client was charged with a serious set of offences including extortion, assaults and drug offences by police in Gladstone, Queensland.

She was refused bail in the Magistrates Court. Following refusal of bail, she was referred to Alan Phillips of our office for representation.

The client pursued a bail application in the Supreme Court. A matter of days before her application, she was recorded on the jail phone system threatening members of the public that they would be seriously assaulted if she was granted bail that week.

Given these threats, her bail application was refused. Alan Phillips of our office continued fighting for his client. A further application for bail was made proposing that the client move away from the offence area. Given the seriousness of the threats, the Court was still not persuaded to grant bail.

Alan persisted to a third Supreme Court bail application, and secured a live in rehabilitation facility for her to be bailed to. On 27 July 2023, after hearing submissions, Justice Kelly granted bail ordering strict conditions that our client reside and participate in a live-in rehabilitation centre as well as wear an electronic tracking device.  

Our office's determination to continue fighting for our clients is second to none. If you require representation, contact our office on 07 3180 0158.
