Amber Jane Westin – Back in court

By johnboy 1 December 2006 25

The Courier Mail reports that Canberra’s least loved resident, Amber Jane Westin, was hobbling back into court yesterday on a cane.

On top of her current charge of culpable driving causing death, she’s picked-up seven more charges:

“unlicensed driving, using an unregistered vehicle, using an uninsured vehicle, using a vehicle that had registration for another vehicle, using a vehicle with a number plate for another vehicle, and failing to stop for police.

She also was charged with making off without paying for 15.66 litres of petrol on September 21

On the bright side she did actually make it to court, which is a big step forward for her.

UPDATED: OK, I’ve been thinking about this, why only steal 15.66 litres of petrol? Why not go for the whole tank if you’re going to drive off?

What’s Your opinion?

Never mind incompetent hyperlinking – how’s that for incompetent marker-uppering?

why only steal 15.66 litres of petrol>/i>

If you were picking a particularly busy time (was 21/9 a public service pay day?) when the attendants were distracted to steal the petrol, I imagine you’d have a limited window of opportunity. You’d start filling, and the second the queue started to shorten, or one of the attendants looked like they might be freed up, you’d pop the cap on and bug out with whatever you got.

Worth her weight in coal.

SamTSeppo I would expect that this is just a committal hearing, with the matter to be heard properly in the Supreme Court, given the serious nature of the charges, but I’m not sure…

maybe she was riding a bike with a 16 litre tank.
