No Case to Answer

Prior to an answer charge hearing , a defendant can file and serve a notice asserting that there is no case to answer with respect to the charge [Criminal Procedure Act 1921 (SA) s 112(1)].

The notice must specify why the defendant asserts that there is no case to answer [s 112(3)(b)].

The defendant will then be given the opportunity to be heard on the application including giving or calling an evidence and making submissions in support of the application [s 114(1)(d)].
