Bail

Sean Fagan has had success for clients in securing bail, making condition changes, and securing release when there were prior orders for detention

Unfortunately, when bail is denied, some accused persons will plead guilty just to avoid waiting in custody until trial, despite having good defences to the charges against them.


In this country, judicial interim release (“bail”) is by no means an absolute right. Every day, people charged with criminal offences are ordered detained pending trial. You can be held in custody for many months, sometimes years, until your case is finally heard. Often, you will have served most or all of your sentence by the time trial has finished.

Unfortunately, when bail is denied, some accused persons will plead guilty just to avoid waiting in custody until trial, despite having good defences to the charges against them.

Even if the Crown does not oppose your release, they may try to impose harsh conditions, such as house arrest, driving prohibitions, a ban on owning a cell phone, or no-contact orders with friends, family, or romantic partners.

Sean Fagan has had success for clients in securing bail, making condition changes, and securing release when there were prior orders for detention.
