“Ainslie Mother” back in the clink – again

By johnboy - 22 August 2008 19

It’s the saga we couldn’t write for ourselves.

Ainslie Mother is back in prison after the promised employer was charged with perjury.

The ABC reports:

    Last week the accused was granted bail after Tessa Woodcock provided surety for her.

    Ms Woodcock offered the mother house cleaning work and also provided details of her previous living arrangements and criminal history.

    But today the ACT Supreme Court was told Ms Woodcock has been charged with perjury after police discovered she had convictions for receiving stolen goods in 2006 and provided incorrect addresses on the bail sheet.

Something to put on your “dumb things not to do” list.

What’s Your opinion?

People lie to the Court? Unheard of, would never see a defence lawyer doing that now would we? Almost as amazing as people dying in places other than hospitals!!!!!!!!!

Crims being made responsible for crims isn’t new. Last year one of our good justices (I can’t name them or they’ll get indigestion) ordered a bloke who had been found guilty of multiple armed stick-ups, be bailed from Belco remand centre into the custody of his junkie girlfriend, to visit his supposedly dying father. She was ordered have him back by 17:00 hours the same day. N.S.W. coppers picked them both up for armed robbery the following week.

Our territory has become a very, very bad joke I’m afraid.

Wrong – Not the Territory, the Courts. Unfortuantely we have to wear it.

CJ? Not even his son could beat sense into him.

It’s called Higginsworld – where everyone is lovely, caring, honest and nothing horrid, despicable or terrible ever happens.

You see Courts in the ACT believe that all defendants and those associated with them tell the truth.

In which universe are they operating in ? Can’t be ours.

“I would have expected the court to check this out as a part of the bail application process.”

That was your 1st mistake. You see Courts in the ACT believe that all defendants and those associated with them tell the truth. The only ones who don’t are the Police.

The funny thing is the Courts would have remained blissfully unaware of this unless the police brought the charge, because I’m damn sure the Court would not have made any enquiries

Where is TTWBT? I want to hear his/her take on this…. Dont let us down!

is it a coincidence that TTWBT seemed to be a close friend of the ainslie mother, could have been ms woodcock herself?

And it took how long for someone to verify the details? I would have expected the court to check this out as a part of the bail application process.

Albeit, not in these circumstances.

What a surprise? I didn’t see that coming.
