Rebecca Anne Massey makes bail

By johnboy - 26 June 2009 67

The ABC brings word that the accused Charnwood stabber, Rebecca Anne Massey has been granted bail in the ACT Supreme Court by Justice Hilary Penfold after 11 months in custody on remand. (For those who came in late Rebecca is accused of the stabbing murder of Elizabeth Anne Booshand at Charnwood shops last July.)

    She said Massey is being affected by what appears to be excessive delays in bringing her case to trial, a process which could take up to two years.

    Massey will have to report daily to police, abide by a curfew and not carry a knife or weapon in a public place.

So… anyone want to run a book on when the first breach of bail will occur?

Time until Rebecca Massey breaches her bail?

You can’t blame it on the sunshine. You’ve got to blame it on the boogie…

Not carry a weapon or knife in public?!?! This Justice Penfold hands down strict conditions!!

I’m guessing the following conversation will take place in teh next couple of weeks:

Penfold: “I told you no weapons or knives, Massey!”
Massey: “No, no… You said no weapons or knives in ‘public’. I beheaded the deceased with a machete and an axe in my kitchen, ergo I am not in breach of bail and am free to go”.
Penfold: “Cor Blimey RM, your right, my mistake. Off you go… Can I call you a cab?”

The ‘weapon in public’ bit, just means that if she *IS* caught with a weapon in public, she can be charged with that, plus also breach of bail straight away.

The fact that not carrying a weapon has to be specified as a bail condition must cast serious doubt on her suitability for bail.

Anyway, isn’t letting her out on bail a hardship for her? Separating her from the majority of her family.

Boo hoo – Massey is being affected by delays in her trial ….nowhere near as much as Elizabeth Booshand was affected by having a knife stuck in her.

I would have thought not breaking the law was automatically a part of all bail conditions?

So she can carry a weapon in private????

Where is the option for 1 hour?

I gave her a week, but I suspect she won’t make it that far!

I’ve gone for two weeks. Most people can stay on their best behaviour for a week. Two weeks however people start to go back to their old ways….

If you change the question to “when will she be caught breaking bail” then I can pick one. Otherwise, I feel that one day option to be a little long…
