Manly Local Court – March 2016

Our client was a young woman with a seriously long criminal history for offences stemming from her longstanding drug habit. She was sentenced on the basis of 6 different sets of criminal matters, those primarily being property offences in the nature of forged prescriptions, identity offences, and unlawful possession of pharmaceutical drugs. Despite being in breach of 2 suspended sentences, we managed to persuade the magistrate to deal with our client leniently; and she received a short sentence of 2 months with an extended parole period of 10 months to assist in her rehabilitation in the community.
