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.

Actually sometimes I’d be cross but firm.

Granny 3:33 pm 09 Nov 08

I would be kind but firm, WMC!

Granny, it was a direct quote and believe me it was only put in there to stop defamation etc. 🙂

I just find it intresting that she was allowed bail at all.

I think true justice could be better served by common sense.

I can see it now:

SCENE: A COURT ROOM

“I’m Judge Granny, and I find you guilty because I reckon everybody knows you probably done it.”

THE COURT HOLDS ITS BREATH EXPECTANTLY.

“Oh, sorry. *chuckle*”

EVERYBODY CHEERS.

How hilarious; I must be psychic!! (see post #18) But then again, I find spazzy behaviour pretty easy to predict having been the victim of it quite often.
I feel sorry for any kids involved if they have them.

That rule doesn’t apply to the internet.

On the internet, anyone even suspected of committing the smallest misdemeanor is assumed to be a child-raping holocaust-denying dole-bludging junkie living in the lap of luxury on MY TAX DOLLARS.

Post of the year. lmao

That’s very deep and impressive, caf!

: )

But stupid is stupid whether it’s coming from a court or anywhere else.

Granny, I am in agreement with Albert Einstein when he said:

Common sense is nothing more than a deposit of prejudices laid down by the mind before you reach eighteen.

Granny 4:21 pm 07 Nov 08

Well, as long as it’s only ALLEGED.

*chuckle*

The Canberra Times is also ALLEGING that she “drove for nearly 120m with the man clinging to the bonnet of her car.”

poptop 4:16 pm 07 Nov 08

*Ouch!*

Did her defence ALLEGE she was not a risk to the community and should be bailed?

nyssa76 3:50 pm 07 Nov 08

Ok, so I was ‘curious’ as to what was more important than for her to stay here in the ACT and attend the court hearing.

The response was this:

ALLEGEDLY the woman did a B&E in Bega and ALLEGEDLY assaulted the home owner (quite badly).

Yes, Police do not determine guilt however keep in mind that to arrest a person there has to be circumstances that action.

Police put people before the Courts or, where the Court has given them the authority, issue a fine/penalty for minor matters where the evidence available to them is such that it is appropriate – you can still take those to Court too. It isn’t rocket surgery.

We obviously have different definitions of ‘innocent’.

Me:

innocent = didn’t do it
guilty = did do it

You

innocent = what court says regardless of truth
guilty = what court says regardless of truth

It is nice when the two line up, n’est-ce pas?

I am not knocking the construct of “Innocent until proven guilty” because I understand that this is crucial to a fair trial, but I think true justice could be better served by common sense.

And I think people are hungry for justice and sick of all this crap. Because so much of what is being served up is actually injustice, and people have a native hatred of injustice. This is why our courts are so despised.

The CT has more on this in todays (online at least)… Seems an arrest warrant has been drawn up but will not be executed unless she fails to appear next time. Still no mention of what she was in Bega court for yesterday but I’m trying to find out.

I think she’s going to have some lifestyle changes made for her whether she want’s them or not…lol 😉

I reckon, if you find yourself having scheduling conflicts between court appearances where you’re the defendant – it’s time to reevaluate your lifestyle.

One would suspect so…

So if I tell a policeman that I drove my car into the concrete or up onto a fence, does that mean I didn’t do it until a court finds it to be so? Am I innocent? What if an incident never goes to court?

The ACT “Justice” system is like a toothless tiger.

bigfeet is 100% right.
