Some basic general information regarding criminal law (for information purposes only):

Criminal Law is law which involves the state (The Crown) bringing a prosecution against an individual. Only crimes (or offences) which already exist in law can be used to prosecute people. These are laid down by Parliamentary Law (statutes like the Crimes Act 1900, or by previous decided case history in the courts (common law).

Innocent until proven Guilty?


To convict someone of an offence, the Prosecution has to show the court that the person has committed the offence to a level of certainty which is very high. The phrase that judges use is "you must be satisfied so that you are sure". Verdicts along the lines of "he probably did it," or "if she didn't do it, who else did?", are not usually enough for a conviction. The prosecution must show beyond reasonable doubt that the offence occurred and was done by the accused person (or the defendant). In the eyes of the Criminal Courts, not sure is not guilty.

Juries and Judges


In the criminal courts, there are generally two levels of court. The first level is the Magistrates Court. This court deals with less serious types of offence, such as most motoring offences and drink driving, or low value thefts and less serious assaults. However, this court can still impose prison sentences.

In the District Court, a jury of 12 memebers will be first told that they have to find the defendant guilty or not guilty by unanimous vote. If no verdict can be reached, a re-trial may be ordered.

What the Prosecution must prove:


The prosecution must prove two things: that the accused did it, and did it on purpose.

Defences


Just because someone is guilty of committing an illegal act, and of meaning it/knowing it was wrong, that doesn't definitely mean that they are guilty of the offence. They might have a defence, or a good reason why they should not be convicted.

If someone committed an offence while, for example, protecting themselves or their family, then that could be a defence which would help them avoid being found guilty.

Self Defence / Defence of Someone Else / Defence of Property and other defences

If someone commits an offence of violence (such as assault) to prevent getting injured, to prevent someone else getting injured, or to protect his or her property, then that can sometimes mean they are entitled to a defence. The force used must be necessary, and reasonable. That means there must be no other obvious course of action to avoid the injury or damage (such as moving away top avoid the situation), and the level of force used must be proportionate to the threat - the fact that the defendant thought the action was reasonable is not enough to suggest that it was. However, the jury have to accept the facts as the defendant honestly believed them to be at the time, even if he or she was mistaken. So if the jury believe that a defendant honestly thought that his attacker had a knife and so attacked him, the jury have to take that belief into account. Then they can consider whether his reaction, for example stabbing the attacker first, was reasonable by their standard.

Mental Defences

There are other defences which relate to the mental state of the person who is accused. They include:

Automatism

This is a defence when the act has been done unconsciously and involuntarily, “done by the muscles without any control by the mind”. There must be a total loss of control of the body and it cannot be self-induced, so alcohol related blackouts don’t count.

Diminished Responsibility

This is a partial defence to murder only. It can reduce murder to manslaughter. Generally speaking, the defendant must prove that he was suffering from an abnormality of mind caused by something inherent and which substantially impaired the defendant’s responsibility for the killing. It does not have to be the only cause provided it still substantially impaired the mental responsibility of the defendant.

Provocation

This is another partial defence to murder, but is not a defence to any other offences. There are two stages to the test for provocation: The first is that the defendant must have been provoked and lost his self control. This depends on the evidence and what the jury decides. The second stage is to decide whether the provocation was enough to make a reasonable man react in that way.

Each state and territory has its own criminal laws, as follows:

New South Wales

Criminal offences under New South Wales law are based on the common law and some statutory provisions in the Crimes Act 1900 (NSW).

Victoria

Most crimes in Victorian jurisdiction are codified in the Crimes Act 1958 (Vic.). There are also a number of common law provisions for criminal conduct within Victoria.

Queensland

The Criminal Code Act 1899 (Qld) is the primary instrument for the source of criminal law in Queensland. The Criminal Code Act was largely the product of Sir Samuel Walker Griffith, then Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Queensland (and formerly Premier).

South Australia

Most crimes in South Australia are codified in the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1935 (SA). There are also a number of common law provisions for criminal conduct in South Australia.

Tasmania

Tasmania's serious criminal offences, like those in Queensland and Western Australia, are set in a single piece of legislation, the Criminal Code Act 1924. This includes serious offences against the person (murder, manslaughter, death by dangerous driving, wounding, rape, sexual assault), against property (computer crimes, stealing, burglary, robbery and the like) and against society (bribery of public officials, treason, etc.).

Like the Queensland and Western Australian legislation, the mental element (or mens rea) is located under section 13 of the Code, requiring that an act or omission be "voluntary and intentional" for a crime to have occurred. The intent of this is to rule out circumstances where a person is not in control of their own actions - for instance, automatism, insanity, and for some offences, intoxication.

There are numerous other laws where criminal offences may be found. These include the Firearms Act (offences relating to ownership or use of firearms or ammunition), the Police Offences Act (less serious criminal acts and breaches of the peace), the Road Safety (Alcohol and Drugs) Act for drink driving, amongst many others.

Western Australia

Western Australia has an almost exhaustive codification of criminal law in a Criminal Code substantially based on the Queensland one.

Northern Territory

The Northern Territory has also an almost exhaustive codification of criminal Law in a similar Criminal Code to that of Queensland and Western Australia. In fact, the drafting of the NT Criminal Code Act 1983, reflected aspects of both the QLD and WA Criminal Codes.

Common Law and Code Jurisdictions

Australian criminal law was originally received from the English common law, which continued to evolve in Australian courts. Although all states also have some legislation on the criminal law, in some states criminal law has been codified whereas in other the bulk of the law is based on the common law. These may be referred to as ‘common law jurisdictions’ and ‘code jurisdictions’.

New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria are common law jurisdictions. These States have Crimes Acts which list the most common offences and fix their penalties, but do not always exhaustively define the elements of the offence e.g. Crimes Act 1900 (NSW). It is settled law in the common law jurisdictions that only Parliaments, not the courts, can create new offences.

The “code jurisdictions” are the Commonwealth, the Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory, Queensland, Tasmania, and Western Australia. In these jurisdictions a statutory code has been introduced to be a comprehensive statement of criminal law, and are interpreted to replace the common law except in cases of ambiguity. Codification in some cases involved a simple enactment of the common law into a statutory instrument. In other cases the changes were greater as the code was based on legislative instruments from other jurisdictions.

Legislation (including the criminal codes) is further refined by the method of judicial precedent and interpretation.

In addition to explicitly titled criminal code legislation there exists in most jurisdictions a further body of legislative or case precedent, the breach of whose conditions may result in criminal proceedings. e.g. Summary Offences Act 1966 (Vic)

Law enforcement and police

The police in Australia are responsible for keeping peace and order in the community and bringing before the court people they believe have broken the law. Although police officers may arrest people and give evidence in court, they do not decide whether or not people are guilty of crimes. This is the responsibility of the courts.

Australia has a national police force—the Australian Federal Police—that investigates offences against federal laws, including drug trafficking, illegal immigration, crimes against national security and crimes against the environment.

All states of Australia and the Northern Territory have their own police forces that deal with crimes under state or territory laws. Policing in the Australian Capital Territory is handled by the Australian Federal Police.

Australian Crime Commission

The Australian Crime Commission was established in January 2003 (replacing the National Crime Authority) as an independent statutory body to work nationally with federal, state and territory agencies, principally to counter serious and organised crime. It brings together all arms of Australian intelligence gathering and law enforcement to coordinate the fight against major crime.

History / Chronology of Criminal Law

Introduction

This chronology aims to document the important milestones in Commonwealth criminal law.

Constitutionally the Commonwealth Parliament has no general power to legislate in relation to crime. State and Territory governments are mandated by their Constitutions to legislate for the peace, order and good government of their jurisdictions. They have a general power to maintain public order and to protect individuals who reside within their State and their property.

The constitutional basis for the Crimes Act 1914, the Criminal Code Act 1995 and offence provisions in other Commonwealth legislation is found in the express incidental power in section 51 (xxxix) of the Constitution or in the implied incidental powers contained in the heads of power in sections 51 and 52 and in the executive power in section 61. The majority of Commonwealth criminal offences and penalties are to be found in various Commonwealth statutes dealing with widely differing subjects, eg customs and excise, taxation, insurance, social security, broadcasting and the Internet.

The Commonwealth’s powers to legislate have been greatly expanded through the external affairs power (section 51 (xxix)). The Tasmanian Dams case in the High Court confirmed that the Commonwealth is able to enact legislation to fulfil obligations incurred through its ratification of treaties covering areas otherwise outside its constitutional capacity
Another area of Commonwealth expansion into the area of criminal law has been the few occasions where the States have considered that a national law is preferable to a set of State laws and have referred their constitutional powers to legislate to the Commonwealth. This has happened, for example, in the areas of corporations regulation (2001) and anti-terrorism legislation (2002).

Commonwealth criminal legislation, therefore, began mainly covering offences against the Commonwealth and its institutions, or against Commonwealth officers, property or revenue. It has expanded, through the reasons mentioned above, to cover other areas of national concern.

This introduction is based on Report of the Review of Commonwealth Law Enforcement Arrangements, AGPS, Canberra, 1994, p. 10-11.

Unfortunately, studies do not bear out that the death penalty is a deterrent to crime or murder.
