You may be guilty of some offence, such as: stealing goods or services, using malware to damage or damage another computer or computer network, or using a device to access, upload, store or download content or data, including a password or password-cracking device.
You can be charged with criminal damage to property, criminal damage of a computer, or criminal damage, theft or fraud.
You can also be charged under the Computer Misuse Act 2000, which is similar to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act 2001.
You may also be subject to criminal harassment orders, which can be used against you if you are suspected of engaging in a criminal act.
If you’re accused of criminal harassment, the police will investigate the matter and, if necessary, can also charge you with an offence under the Sexual Offences Act 2003.
If you’re charged with any of these offences, you can ask a court for a pre-trial report to assist you with your defence.
If your case is heard by a magistrate, you’ll be able to take the case to court.
You’ll be taken to court for your case.
If a magistrate is satisfied that your case isn’t a public nuisance, you may be given a notice that you’ll appear in person at a Magistrates Court.
This will tell the court that you will be charged and will be given an opportunity to give evidence.
The judge will make a finding of fact and the court will make an order, which will give you a chance to apply for bail.
If the bail conditions are good, you could be released on bail within the time required by the judge.
You’re not charged if the police find you’re not a person who’s engaged in the criminal act and that you’ve been given a false name, address or other identifying information.
If the police can’t find you, the prosecution can ask the court to make a recommendation to the Magistrates’ Court that you be released from custody.
If there’s a suggestion that the person you’re arrested is a known offender, you should contact the police.
If, after your arrest, you’re found guilty of criminal damage or theft, you won’t be charged.
If that’s the case, you might be able for a new trial if the judge determines that you should be.
