Hi, I am a student currently studying the subject of criminal law. I am required to submit a bail application for a client provided to us. My client was on bail for charges under s192C of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) (obtaining property belonging to another) when he was charged with an offence under s35(4) of the Crimes Act (Reckless Wounding). We are required to submit if this is a show cause offence, which I am not sure of as I do not know if committing a Table 1 offence while on bail is considered as a serious indictable offence? is obtaining property that belongs to another a serious personal offence? should I submit a release application with condition or unconditional bail? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
