We are experienced in bail applications, criminal trials and criminal appeals. Criminal Law is the branch of law that governs a citizen’s relationship with the state. It covers an array of definitions of criminal law offenses, which are usually established by state legislatures. Criminal law also embraces the rights of an accused and the criminal process, including arrest, pleas, discovery, pretrial hearings, trials, evidence, motions, and post-trial remedies.Crimes are generally classified as misdemeanours, less serious offenses that are normally punishable by a fine like some traffic violations, petty theft, and minor offences. More serious offences, such as murder, culpable homicide, car-theft, fraud and house-robbery, however attract often long imprisonment sentences.

In order to prove any crime in South Africa, the prosecutor must prove that the accused committed a criminal act with intent beyond a reasonable doubt. Mphela and Associates Attorneys represents you in the application for bail, trial and appeal of court verdicts.
