He could be charged as a party to these charges because he was present but not the main offender. He can apply for legal aid, and the prison must help him with that. If they don’t, then he can apply when he goes to court next
Customer
He's legal aid lawyer has put in a plea against he's word, he's been denied bail but address was approved they have put forward for E-bail application and address was approved but he won't find out until a day before he's courts. He's tried to change he's lawyer but has been unsuccessful. We've just had our first son and it's quite scary to know he's looking at 7 years. Is there any way at all we can hire him a lawyer to help him work thorough this?
Customer
Is there a way he can go for community base sentence?

You can hire your own lawyer but that would cost money of course. Is the court hearing in Hamilton?

He can try for home detention but it will depend on his criminal record and the severity of the charges
Customer
He had court in Tokoroa on 7th of May and was remanded till 4th of June. He appeared in Rotorua Courts on the 25th and I'm unsure what happened until my partner calls this morning. We are willing to pay for a lawyer
Customer
He's charges are failing to stop for red and blue lights, ammunition and breach of community services and failing to appear in court in Rotorua. He's tokoroa case is ammunition firearm and what he's been accused of... unlawfully taking a motor vechile with force, firing a firearm with bodily harm... He's previous records are for driving and possession of a firearm 10 years ago I'm sure.
Customer
family domestic. This is he's 3rd time in prison

The firearm charges will be the most difficult to deal with on sentencing. He is probably best to aim for the e bail and then decide what charges he wants to defend and what he will plead guilty. He won’t likely be able to organise a new lawyer before the 25th but I can suggest names in Rotorua if you want
Customer
Thank you, ***** ***** has an application put forwarded for Ebail. He has court on June 4th, if you're able to help suggest names i will be very grateful
