Want to know more about...?

Sex Offender’s Register

The sex offender’s register is a central information register for the storage of data on individuals who have been convicted of registrable sex offences. Anyone who has been convicted of a registrable sex offence may have their information and personal details stored on the register.

Drink Driving Penalties

Drink driving charges can be tricky to navigate, as there are various offences and penalties that fall under the umbrella of ‘drink driving’. New mandatory penalties to be introduced in early 2018 will make Victorian Traffic Law arguably the harshest in Australia.

Contesting a speeding fine

There are numerous myths on disputing a speeding fine. The simple rule is that if you are caught exceeding the speed limit, you are guilty of an offence. The penalties for speeding are based upon the amount you exceed the speed limit.

Damage to Property

Under Victorian law, it is an offence to intentionally cause the destruction of, or cause damage to property belonging to another. It is a defence to a charge of destroying or damaging property if you had a ‘lawful excuse’ to do so.

Falsification of Documents

Whilst the offence of Forgery no longer exists, it is an offence to knowingly falsify, or misrepresent, documents. Falsifying a document means to make a document appear to be genuine, such as if it was authorised, signed or created by someone who did not actually authorise, sign or create it.

Drug Possession

In Victoria, the most common charge relating to possession of drugs is possession of a ‘drug of dependence’. The legislation differentiates between types and amounts of drugs, providing several other categories of offences, relating to possession, use, production and trafficking.
