The mother of an alleged murderer has been granted bail in Batemans Bay Local Court charged with concealing a serious indictable offence.
Julie Louise Sharpe, 46, was brought into the court on Friday, July 12, wearing a prison green tracksuit after being arrested the previous day in Batemans Bay.
Senior Constable Stephen Halliday told the court the prosecution would not oppose bail after reaching agreement with the defence on conditions.
"We have negotiated conditions which we feel will appropriately address unacceptable risk," he said.
Defence solicitor Geoff Knox argued Sharpe was not a flight risk and could have absconded long before her arrest.
"Ms Sharpe has been aware of the potential of these charges for three months because they relate to a matter affecting her son," he told the court.
"She could have absconded before now."
Daniel James Sharpe was due to appear in Goulburn Court on July 12 after being arrested the previous day and charged with murder.
Mr Knox told the Batemans Bay Court that Ms Sharpe agreed to have "no contact with Daniel Sharpe, who is her son, or David Sharpe, her ex-partner, who was present at the occurrence in Surfside where Daniel Sharpe is alleged to have committed the murder".
Mr Knox said Sharpe had respected the court in the past regarding previous matters and was not at risk of re-offending.
"She has always appeared in court and accepted conditions of the court," Mr Knox said.
The Batemans Bay Court's Authorised Justice said Sharpe's criminal record was limited, she had no "fail to appears" on that record and she had strong community ties.
Bail was granted on the condition she reside at a Lake Tabourie address and report three times per week to Ulladulla Police Station.
Sharpe must not contact or try to contact her son, her ex-partner or any witnesses or interfere with any evidence.
She must contact police within 24 hours if she changes her place of residence.
A bail forfeit of $1000 was imposed.
The matter was adjourned to Monday, August 5 at Batemans Bay Local Court.
