The Canberra Times has the sorry story of alleged arsonist Rodney Farraway.
Rodney was bailed on condition he attend the Canberra Recovery Centre drug-and-alcohol clinic. Only when he got kicked out of it for allegedly smuggling in his own hooch no-one picked up the ball.
- “Farraway, 31, was thrown out of the clinic last Monday night after allegedly being caught with alcohol on the premises.
He was found by police two days later walking the streets of Ngunnawal, within a kilometre of his alleged victim’s home.
Farraway, who must stay at least 500m from the woman, was allegedly drunk at the time of his arrest and claimed he was on his way to a friend’s house where he was staying.
Justice Higgins released Farraway on bail again yesterday after observing that the decision to throw him out of the Canberra Recovery Centre last week had been ”harsh”.”
Farraway’s lawyer has promised to put him on a bus to Sydney in the hope he’ll turn up at rehab centre there.
You couldn’t make this stuff up.
