Amber gets 15 months periodic detention

By johnboy 18 May 2007 48

The ABC has the interesting news that Magistrate has seen fit to sentence Amber Westin to 15 months of periodic detention for her fatallity inducing crimes.

She’s also barred from getting a driver’s licence for 10 years which is of small importance as she didn’t have one when she killed Heather Freeman. (That she was at the time running a red light to get away from police and was supposed to be in court at that moment is obviously of little matter)

I fail to see how somebody of her character has spent so little time behind bars, when she has consistently landed on the ‘go straight to jail’ square.

No, they’ll let her off again…idiots.

Does that mean she’s breached conditions of some sort and will be spending time in the pokey full-time?

And now the skanky slapper has been busted with pot and intravenous drug equipment whilst in detention. Society would be a better place if the bitch was hanged

Interesting. Is the 2year thing recent? Cause i’m fairly sure about the instance I’m thinking of, that involved more than 2 years.

Magistrates can only hand down 2yrs gaol time. For more than that it has to go to the supreme court. Which in the ACT she probably would have got off with a good behaviour bond.

Didn’t point out that Heavs said it was BS… I agreed with him.. then I was stating it was all BS. And if it is true that a magistrate can only lay down a 2 year sentence while the hell was she in the magistrates court!?!
She drove unlicence, led a police chase and killed someone.. Heck Todd Carney is probably going to get more jail time (if he does) and he didn’t kill anyone.

Heavs never said anything about it being BS. Just that the sentencing legislation defines that home life must be taken into account when sentencing.

Hasn’t passed judgement on the sentencing in any way whatsoever.
