Ainslie mother breaches bail – bailed again by the CJ

By johnboy - 16 July 2008 53

The ABC informs us that the infamous “Ainslie mother” has been arrested for breaching her bail conditions, but had her bail restored by Chief Justice Higgins.

    the ACT Supreme Court heard the woman was taken into custody on Tuesday night after she failed to attend Corrective Services as directed in her bail conditions. Her lawyer, David Claxton, told the court his client misunderstood the instructions.

What’s Your opinion?

My mistake – I did actually mean to refer to Higgins… rage making my hands shake while I type.

In fairness to Magistrates, it was actually a decision handed down by a Judge (Higgins) of the Supreme Court.

If I recall correctly, she was initially refused bail by a Magistrate three times prior to applying to the Supreme Court, and getting it first time. You’ve got to wonder why a Judge (or maybe it’s just Higgins) felt so differently to the Magistrate about granting bail.

Another case of Magistrates and lawyers not being accountable to the community.

Election season is around the corner – all parties should be all over issues like this.

they should, but they aren’t – there are too many other opportunities to score points – datacentres, land sales, the NCA & Light rail… all much more interesting than a obviously mentally ill individual.

Once again we are indebted to out friendly trans-Tasman neighbours for sending over more human filth. First it was Russell Crowe, now this bitch.

Ter, restoring bail

Who’da thunk it?

How about the subject of the whole matter (and consumer of taxpayer-funded services) faces disciplinary action?!

This is typical of courts. It’s no wonder that magistrates dont get any respect. These people breach the magistrates orders, and it seems the magistrates are more than happy for this to happen.

My suggestion:

Bail is a luxury, you breach it, you stay in lock up till your hearing. End of story.

So the screeching harridan breached her bail? Anyone surprised?

She grossly neglected her children, made threats against the person looking after her other children, behaved like a banshee in court and was bailed.Surely she she have been held in custody or sent off for psychological evaluation.

LG 1:55 pm 16 Jul 08

Can I suggest the lawyer face disciplinary action since, if you accept his argument, he did not properly explain the bail conditions to her?
