The Canberra Times has amusing court news as one Brittney Belle Fairbairn (19) has gamely requested of the Magistrates Court that she get weekend detention for her six counts of of unregistered driving.
The appeal of the weekend detention is it would let her spend more time with her thieving boyfriend who is already doing weekend porridge.
Brittney’s previous boyfriend we hear is an alleged burglar and car thief which prompted Magistrate Karen Fryar to make the unusual sentencing offer of dating advice:
‘Quite frankly, firstly, your choice of partners is only going to get you more trouble with the law,” Magistrate Karen Fryar told Fairbairn…
Ms Fryar criticised the defendant’s decision to push for weekend jail ”simply because some stupid boy is a criminal, and he is there already”.
On top of 160 hours of community service and a six month suspended sentence Magistrate Fryar has recommended cognitive skills and assertiveness programs.
Who would have thought there were courses for not being a bloody idiot? Anyone know if they’re any good?
