Dribbin & Brown Criminal Lawyers have represented numerous clients in relation to both Perjury and Pervert the Course of Justice charges.
We have offices in Dandenong, Melbourne, Frankston, Geelong, Moorabbin and Ringwood in close proximity to the local courts.
Up until two years ago, perjury could only be dealt with in the County Court. That has now changed and the charge can be heard in the Magistrates’ Court.
The judiciary always take a dim view of perjury as it strikes at the foundation of our justice system. The Court relies upon people who are called to give evidence in both curial and non-curial forms to tell the truth. When they don’t the police lay charges.
Perjury can be either under oath, in an official statement, or both.
Perjury and Pervert the Course of Justice are matters that are taken very seriously by the judiciary and will nearly always be dealt with in the superior courts.
If you are facing charges or are at risk of perjuring yourself, call our office today. Speak to one of our Melbourne Criminal Lawyers to see how we can assist you.
