Public Order Offences

A simple swear words, or a colorful description can land you in front of magistrate. You may say this is F*cked, but using this word in public may well constitute as offensive behavior and could potentially lead to a criminal record and fine or community service order.

So how do we reconcile the fact that some people do not like to be sworn at, that police often swear yet exercise the power of arrest upon others that also swear (in fact it is part of the police culture), and that these words are regularly heard on television and in the movies, are printed in the popular press, can be heard being used by prominent sports men and women and even feature in ‘music’ lyrics?

Too many people have been prosecuted for this offence and pleaded guilty (or been advised to plead guilty!!!) without considering the law on the subject. Worse still, many of those people have ended up with a criminal conviction/criminal record. It is F*cked.

If you are in this situation, please call us immediately on 9797 8688 we will provide you with necessary advices. Don’t let a single word ruin your life.
