Free lawyer advice: What to know if you’ve been charged with a crime

Legal advice for those who have been charged under section 44 of the Crimes Act 1914 is on offer.

The Federal Government is urging people to get legal advice before they go to court to determine if they should go to jail.

In recent months, the ABC has also reported on cases where people have been jailed under the law for up to two years for breaching a condition of their bail.

The ABC has obtained details of more than 80 people who have had their bail conditions breached, with some being held in jail for up, seven or more years.

The figures come from a Freedom of Information request by the ABC and reflect the amount of time someone has been in jail under the Crimes and Corruption Act.

Under section 44, a person who is found guilty of a crime can be jailed for up or more than two years.

Anyone found guilty under section 4 is also subject to up to five years in jail.

The Government says people should not be jailed unless they have committed a crime, and the charges should be dropped if they have been released on bail.

The Department of Justice says the maximum period of imprisonment under section 40 is six years, and is a penalty that applies to all Australians.

Section 44 says the minimum period of custody for those charged under the act is 24 months, and if a person is found not guilty of the offence, the maximum sentence for that offence is life imprisonment.

A person can be charged under sections 44 and 44A, 45, 46, 47, 48, 49 or 50 if they are convicted of the same offence more than once.

If a person has been charged more than twice, they will be charged again, with the maximum of five years’ imprisonment.

In some cases, the Commonwealth has been able to bring the maximum penalty under section 45 to a lesser amount than the maximum, and this has been the case in some cases.

The Commonwealth can bring a charge under section 46 and a charge of conspiracy under section 48.

Under section 48, a maximum penalty of life imprisonment is imposed.

Under sections 46 and 48, people who are found guilty and sentenced under the laws are eligible for parole.

A parole board can also make decisions on the length of their prison terms.

People who have not been convicted of an offence and who have no reason to fear they will commit a crime while in custody, may be eligible for release under section 51.

People in detention will also be eligible to apply for a conditional release.

People convicted of crimes may be released if the court determines that there are mitigating factors that make them a less likely to commit a further offence.

Under the Crimes Amendment Act 2011, people are not entitled to parole if they meet the criteria for release.

The Australian Law Reform Commission recommends that the maximum jail term for a serious violent crime should not exceed five years.

In cases where there are reasonable grounds for believing a person will commit another offence under the Act, the parole board will decide whether to release them.

The parole board may decide that they should be released, or they may decide not to release.
