Victorian Bail Act

John Sutton

Bail has been and remains a contentious issue for legislators, courts and the community. The Victorian Bail Act has been subject to many revisions since it was first enacted in 1977.

If you or a family member are in custody and have been refused bail, then you should contact a lawyer immediately as bail applications are often strongest in the early stages of a prosecution while the case is still weak.

The Bail Act 1977 gives the Court power to:

  • Grant bail conditionally or unconditionally (ie release a person from custody with or without conditions)
  • Refuse bail
  • Vary bail
  • Revoke bail (ie order a person be returned to custody)
