Magistrate Fryar gives dating advice to Brittney Belle

By johnboy - 1 June 2011 22

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?

What’s Your opinion?

160 hours of community service and a six month suspended sentence for 6 counts of unregistered driving. I got 6 months jail for 1 count of unregistered driving 20 years ago. Magistrates are suckholes now days.

WTF? I also went unregistered & uninsured, once, 20 years ago, here in the ACT. Went to court, got a $300 fine ($150 each; still adds up to nearer a grand in today’s $$, I guess) and a stern finger-wagging.
Have you told the whole story?

She went to a Catholic School… which makes all of this totally unsurprising.
Regardless of the denomination, the number of kids who go to religious schools then go off the tracks as soon as they leave is staggering. Would seem to confirm that notion of pampered private school kids not coping in the real world.

One girl I know at Uni went to a local Anglican school up until Uni. Fantastic potential but she’s floundering now without the shackles of private school. She hooked up with a total dead beat, whose sole past times are drinking (not in pubs, just walking suburban streets drinking), trying to be a DJ and walking around the Canberra Centre on occasion with a giant novelty penis taking pics in the dressing rooms with it. Every post he makes on Facebook has the F or C word, often more than once.
It’s a common story though, almost stereotypical.
