Man given suspended sentence for robbery

By Thumper - 12 March 2008 27

ABC news is reporting that a 33 year old man was today given an 18 month suspended sentence for robbing the CPS Credit Union at Manuka in February, 2006.

The ACT Supreme Court heard he approached a female teller wearing a beanie, baseball cap and sunglasses and demanded money telling the teller he had a gun and a bomb, even though he was not armed.

He escaped with $17,000 and spent it on a new car and his getaway driver. It was not the first time he had appeared in court for robbery.

What I want to know is what happens about the money. Does he have to pay it back or what?

“But how often would you really see a female teller wearing a beanie, baseball cap and sunglasses?”

Every day in Queanbeyan.

“Remind me why we are building a prison?”

As a sanctury for homeless Kangaroos that have been driven off Dept of Defence land?

Does he get to keep the car ?

Indeed.

Lock these vagrants away.

It ‘pays’ to do crime in the ACT.

Gotta wonder what it takes to actually get a suspended sentence enforced. Surely another conviction for the same serious offence should do it…shouldn’t it?

to lock up the greenies.

The legal revolving door continues. What do you have to do to get locked up these days?

“In 2006, Beasley was also given a suspended jail sentence for using a fake gun, made out of plastic pipes and sticky tape, to hold up a post office in Hughes”
F**king Idiot.
