Breaches of Court Orders

Breaching a court order is viewed as a very serious act. A breach means that an individual or corporate entity has disobeyed or failed to comply with an order or prohibition. A wide range of penalties can be imposed where court orders are breached and, in some cases, separate criminal charges may arise at The Magistrates or Crown Court. Where possible consequences include committal to prison or high financial penalties, it is essential that anyone accused of breaching a court order is able to rely on the very best legal representation.

 

Many criminal cases feature bail conditions imposed to reduce the risk of offending while on bail or to secure a defendant’s attendance at court. Breaching the terms of bail can lead to custody. Among the most common types of bail conditions are:

 

  • Being forbidden from going to a specific area

  • Having to obey a curfew

  • A ‘no contact’ order

  • Not being allowed to possess alcohol or drugs

  • Being prohibited from possessing a weapon

  • Pledging a surety or paying a security into court
