    I am not sure what a committal hearing is.

    I found this and now I am more confused. Why would he waive this hearing if I have the right definition?

    - In the committal hearing a Magistrate decides whether the prosecution has enough evidence for your case to be committed for trial, or sentence. If there is enough evidence and the case is serious enough, your case will be decided by a Judge and a jury in the District or Supreme Court.

    But is he saying with or without enough evidence he wants a trial? I am still confused. I would think what is done in a committal hearing would have to be done to proceed.

    If you decide not to cross examine any witnesses or a Magistrate refuses to direct the attendance of a witness you may choose to agree to dispense with the formalities of a committal hearing.

    The court may require you to complete a form to confirm that you waive any rights you have to a committal hearing. If you choose this course, you will be committed to trial to the District Court.

    Is legal aid available for committals?

    Yes. However, there are a number of conditions which apply to eligibility for legal aid. If you wish to apply for legal aid for a committal, you should lodge an application at the Legal Aid office nearest to you. Legal aid for committals is subject to a means test. You may be required to pay a contribution. There are also limits on the extent of legal aid for committals.
    If your matter is not one for which legal aid is available, you can instruct and pay for a solicitor or barrister to appear for you. Otherwise you will have to represent yourself.
    Committal proceedings can be difficult to conduct if you have no legal training. It is unwise to attempt to represent yourself unless you are well prepared and have had legal advice.

    Ooh I hope he gets found guilty at trial. He needs to pay for everything he did to those 2 little girls and perhaps William as well.

    I think he thinks he will get off.

    Williams 5th birthday is coming up,still nothing new to report sadly.
    Bill went to court last week but there was nothing in the news about it,there seems to be a media blackout on him for some reason.

    Every time I see movement in William's thread my heart beats fast, alas. So sad that William is still missing and no answers.

    It’s meant to a day of celebration, but for William Tyrrell’s family, his fifth birthday is another painful reminder that he’s missing.
    Mid North Coast residents today marked the occasion, selling home-made cakes to raise awareness of the little boy’s disappearance.

    A SUSPECTED paedophile questioned over the disappearance of William Tyrrell is now facing charges in Victoria.

    William Harrie Spedding is expected to appear at the Ballarat Magistrates Court today charged after being charged by sexual crimes detectives.
    The exact nature of the charges being faced by Mr Spedding is not known.
    But it is understood his lawyer will seek to have aspects of the case suppressed “to prevent a real and substantial risk of prejudice to the proper administration of justice”.

    This is an older article but explains why he is in court in Victoria.

    Whitegoods repairman Bill Spedding, 63, was refused bail before Port Macquarie local court on Thursday after police charged him with seven historical child abuse offences.
    Documents tendered to court reveal that Victorian police are also pursuing an investigation into Mr Spedding's alleged involvement in a ring that uses children for sexual gratification.
