Amber Jane Westin pleas guilty – MAXIMUM SENTENCE OF TWO YEARS

By Kerces - 21 February 2007 37

[First filed: February 20, 2007 @ 16:10]

The ABC radio news is running a report that Amber Jane Westin has pleaded guilty to at least some of the charges against her.

In December her charge sheet stood at: culpable driving causing death, 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 had not previously been required to enter pleas for all of these.

UPDATED: The Canberra Times is reporting that due to pleading guilty in the Magistrate’s Court Ms. Westin can only be sentenced to a maximum of two years for her crimes.

What’s Your opinion?

It’s not manslaughter because of the PC thugs/bleeding hearts.

I don’t think she’ll end up doing the time – she’ll cite her baby daughter to get out of it.

Why isn’t it manslaughter?

30 years in my opinion.

I’m wondring – why isn’t manslaughter in there anywhere? Yes, I know culpable driving causing death is, but given that her culpable driving shows a high degree of negligence towards others lives, surely there’s more the DPP could be going for? Although it’s possible they are, but they’re separate charges that aren’t being dealt with in front of a magistrate.

Note – I haven’t done law for ten years, so I’m going on vague recollections here.

max 2 years for all that ? I’m sure she’ll get a suspended sentence.

I wonder how her avoidance of passive dope smoking is going???

What’s the bet she doesn’t do any time?

The maximum jail term a magistrate can hand down is two years.

It’ll be interesting to see if there is a youtube bit like last time.

Did she throw rocks again?

One thing is for sure. It wont affect your membership of the Internet Anonymous Skank Brigade, Sammy …

Not sure how this will effect her membership of the Skank Alliance.
