This is the second of three videos which go with the book “About the Police, the Court and Lawyers – What To Do and What Not To Do.”
The book is about Dan (who has an intellectual disability) and Hannah (who helps Dan make decisions about everyday things). The book guides Dan and Hannah through the criminal justice process in Queensland.
It provides basic information only and it’s not intended to replace the indepth material available from Legal Aid Queensland or the services of a legal practitioner.
This second video explains what Dan and Hannah should do, and should not do, if Dan has been charged with an offence.
He may have been given a Notice to Appear, he may have been given watch house bail, he may have been told to go to another Station to get his fingerprints taken. OR The Police want him to go to the Watch House.
The book and video is funded by the Legal Aid Queensland Community Legal Education Collaboration Fund and produced by the Justice Support Program at Queensland Advocacy Incorporated, in collaboration with the Endeavour Foundation. It’s available in print and to download from the Queensland Advocacy Incorporated website.
