Matthew James Massey released

By johnboy 17 March 2009 44

In my opinion, nothing thrills ACT court watchers like seeing the name Massey come up.

The ABC reports that Matthew James Massey from Ngunnawal has now been released from custody after waiting 424 days for the completion of his trial for receiving a stolen trailer:

    Today in sentencing, the ACT Supreme Court heard Massey had spent 424 days in jail since being charged with the offence.

    During that time Massey was also facing eight charges relating to the robbery of a Kippax jewellery store in August 2007.

    Justice Malcolm Gray ordered a stay of that trial last month after it was revealed a backpack and tools allegedly carried by the offender were not forensically examined for fingerprints or DNA.

Three months for the trailer, released (somewhat reasonably) for time already served.

What’s Your opinion?

because Massey is as tough as a Mars Bar left in a hot car.

Like to see you have a go at him.

But, yeah, it’s sad, but the Massey family isn’t exactly going to be rehabilitated anytime soon.

Never a truer word said about that gentleman, and trust me, he ain’t a hard man

What’s wrong with you people? It obvious Massey just wanted help with some late night gardening, hence the need to have a shovel in the car. The duct tape was obviously needed in case the shovel broke (even Bunnings is closed at night).

ROFLMAO love it Berra. you hit the nail right on the head
