If you're riding in NSW you need to read this:
By Wayne Baffsky
There is still an enormous amount of confusion about the consorting laws. The following is the only way you can be convicted for consorting under section 93 Crimes Act:-
First- the police must give you a warning, oral or in writing, about consorting with, at least 2 persons, who have indictable convictions. Indictable offences are usually the more serious offences, however, possession of a joint is indictable, assault is indictable and some other seemingly less serious offences are indictable.
The police must tell you that the person you are being warned about is a convicted offender and consorting with a convicted offender is an offence. The police can warn you about as many 'convicted offenders' as they like or even just 1. The warning lasts forever. Consorting with a convicted offender is NOT an offence, despite what the Crimes Act requires the police to tell you. If the police warn you about consorting with only 1 'convicted offender', you can consort with that person as much as you like because you can ONLY be convicted for consorting if you consort with 2 'convicted offenders' on 2 occasions each after being warned about both of them.
Second- if you consort with 2 of the 'convicted offenders' that the police have warned you about AND you consort with each of them TWICE then, and only then, can you be convicted of consorting.
It does not matter whether the person who is being warned has a conviction, indictable or otherwise. It only matters that the person being warned about has an indictable conviction.
If you accidentally bump into someone whom you have been given a warning to not consort with, it is not consorting. However, if you remain with that person it may become consorting.
Don't overthink the consorting offence. To be convicted you must consort with 2 persons the police have warned you not to consort with (who are called convicted offenders as they must have an indictable conviction) AND you must consort with each of those persons twice each, at least.
If it does not meet what I have said above, it is not a consorting offence.
