Bail Application

This student studied:
Western Sydney University - 200010 - Criminal Law

2012 BAIL APPLICATION PROBLEM - QUESTION 1 R v Hu You appear for 40 year-old married man, Mr. Jimmy Hu, who is married with three children, aged 10, eight and six. Mr. Hu owns and operates a business buying and selling new and second hand computers at North Sydney. He is a salesman, not an engineer. His business is experiencing financial difficulties. His wife does not work, but stays at home looking after their three children. They live in rented accommodation at Gosford, and Mr. Hu commutes daily. Mr. Hu has been charged under s 188 of the Crimes Act with “receiving stolen property”, namely some 30 computers valued at over $100,000, identified as being stolen over a period of three months from homes located on the lower North Shore of Sydney. There is no dispute that the computers are stolen. The thief has been arrested and has made a statement inculpating your client. The thief has a long record for larceny and break, enter and steal offences, and has a continuing problem with drugs. Your client has provided the Police with some documents, mostly cheque book stub entries, purporting to show how he came by the computers. He denies categorically any knowledge that the computers were stolen. The computers were on-sold by your client and have not yet been recovered by the Police. Mr. Hu has some 15 prior convictions for a series of offences under s.178BA of the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW) involving “dud cheques”. These offences were dealt with together two years ago in the District Court, where he was fined $4000 and a three year good behaviour bond was imposed. You are instructed that these offences were committed at a time when his then mobile telephone business was failing. Mr. Hu has never failed to appear, has strong community ties, and has family who reside in their own homes in suburbs around Hornsby. His brother, Tom Hu, is willing to provide a sum of money as surety, up to $10,000, if required.
