Criminal Justice Reforms in NSW - changes to guilty plea processes
Do you help people who have been charged by police and need to go to court?
There have been some big changes to the criminal justice system in NSW. There are no more committal hearings and case conferences have been introduced. As community workers you may be involved in case conferences to provide support for your clients.
Listen to this podcast to learn about the Early Appropriate Guilty Plea reforms which started on 30 April 2018 and how these changes could affect you and the people you support.
