Ian Kelly back on the streets in 2014

By johnboy - 5 June 2012 15

The Canberra Times has the thrilling news about Ian Kelly, 47, found hiding in the bushes with:

    — a bag full of jewellery
    — 89 convictions for burglary and stolen property
    — a lame story blaming some blokes he didn’t know for filling the bag

Magistrate Peter Morrison thinks 35 months is about right, eligible for parole in 2014.

What’s Your opinion?

Under Section 311 of the ACT Criminal Code Burglary carries a maximum penalty of 14 years imprisonment.

I think the community would expect that someone with over 70 convictions for this offence should be receiving something pretty close to that maximum sentence…or at least half.

…..x 89 = 1246.

Served consecutively. There is no excuse whatsoever for inflicting this piece of garbage on society ever again.

Mine-clearing in Afghanistan maybe.

89 convictions? not exactly a criminal mastermind then?

89 convictions for burglary and stolen property

Sorry?

89 convictions for burglary and stolen property

Rehabilitation seems to be working well then.

Obviously he’s recovered from the debilitating heart attack that was used as an excuse for giving him bail in 2009.

oops – sorry – that’s right – Matthew and Gavin. Either way I’d expect all these bogues would be connected through the criminal underworld somehow….

I think you are thinking of Matthew Massey…

If we can’t lock these people up, can we at least banish them like Goulburn does with their unwanted scum?
