Sharon Mortlock a no-show in court

By johnboy - 6 November 2008 41

The ABC informs us that Sharon Mortlock has failed to front court today over the fatal Wanniassa hit and run of Luke Stefani from August for which she is facing charges.

It seems she had another pressing court date in Bega today.

So go the days of our lives.

What’s Your opinion?

I think bigfoot nailed it…

Perhaps when one has a dance card as full as Ms Mortlocks’, one might like to prioritise in order of sentence.
If that is this case, what does it say about our justice system that someone might choose attend a court hearing for a parking ticket in NSW in preference to a manslaughter(?) hearing in the ACT??

She made a judgement call: (possibly using judgement for the first time in her life)

Disobey a NSW court, where you may get sent to gaol for contempt.

or

Disobey an ACT court, where you will not get sent to gaol, no matter what you do.

if she is attending court in two states theres a fair bet she aint a saint.

My bad, ‘hit and run’.

Spam, yes we’re all ‘rabid armchair warriors’. If you fail to attend a court date the consequences should be adhered to. It’s not rocket science.

Also, if you’d paid attention to the last thread on this situation you’d know that I know part of the deceased family personally.

What other ‘pressing’ issue would have a better excuse than to attend a murder trial?

Another one?

What could be a more pressing issue than a fatal hit & run, Spam Box?

Rubbish, for whatever reason she didn’t attend today (other matters in Bega perhaps were more pressing) the ACT Magistrate wasn’t concerned enough to issue a warrant. In fact this happens all the time. She may have had very good reasons for not attending today (being in court 200klms away) is actually a reasonable(quite rightly) excuse.

She’s innocent(for now anyway) remember?

BTW, she is NOT wanted in ANY state, let alone two

“it’s not like she didn’t know that they were on the same day and couldn’t have asked for a continuance to attend both dates.”

True and she seems to have addressed both matters in both courts to the satisfaction of the Magistrate’s, although apparently not, rabid armchair warriors at RA

Don’t arrest her if she fails to attend the next court date, arrest her now.

It’s not like she didn’t know that they were on the same day and couldn’t have asked for a continuance to attend both dates.

FFS, a man is dead and the ‘light’ way the courts are dealing with this is BS.

I’m trying to sort out the Bega link.

Today, Graeme Reeves, previously referred to as the Bega Butcher, has had his bail conditions varied to allow him to come to Canberra.

Now we hear that Sharon Mortlock is in Begatoday, thereby avoiding court in Canberra.

Coincidence?

Makes you wonder what Ms Mortlock was charged for in Bega that was more pressing than allegedly hitting and running over her boyfriend.
Weapons of Mass Destruction, perhaps? Has there been much genocide in Bega lately?

jb- easy on the day time TV! Just remember, she really loved Luke (dispite all their issues and leaving him on the side of the road to die etc)
