The Criminal Code is a set of laws created to describe criminal offenses in Western Australia. It was replaced by the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1913, which was repealed and replaced with the Criminal Code Act Compilation Act 1913. This act has been amended many times, most recently in 2014. Below are three key points:
– The Criminal Code WA can be found within Part II of the Criminal Law Consolidation Act 1913
– There are only 19 sections total to this code
– It’s important for citizens to know what these codes say so they can follow them and avoid being charged with a Criminal offense.
– Criminal offenses include: assault, burglary, homicide
Everyone needs to know their rights and responsibilities under Criminal Code WA. It’s also important to know what a criminal offense is and a Criminal Code violation.
