Hornsby Local Court – January 2016

Our client was charged with riding in a stolen conveyance after he allowed himself to ride as passenger on two occasions on a stolen scooter. Initially instructing us to plead not guilty, then changing those instructions to deal with the matter by way of diversion under mental health legislation, in the end, our client instructed us to deal with the matter by way of plea in the Local Court. Given our client’s youth, and a number of serious personal issues, we were able to persuade the magistrate to deal with our client’s matter without conviction and place him in a good behaviour bond.
