Still no bail for Sharon Stott

By johnboy - 24 September 2010 18

Back in May last year there was considerable excitment surrounding alleged kidnap and torture in Kambah which required the black pyjama brigade to rescue the victim.

The ABC identified Sharon Ann Stott as one of the alleged offenders. She was bailed later in the month.

She was then arrested in June on three counts of alleged ice trafficking.

Even the merciful ACT courts at this point decided that the public needed protection from Ms Stott until such time as she came to trial and discharged any sentence that may be delivered.

Yesterday her latest bail application was rejected.

Interestingly Justice Penfold has determined that there’s no evidence Ms Stott’s children would be better off with their mother.

However with years to go before all the trials are completed it does highlight the terrible state of the justice system in the ACT.

What’s Your opinion?

And for those of us whom are being extra clever, going to the library or other public internet facility just look up and smile for the cameras.

LOL That goes both ways, but I dont think that you are that smart. So with the overwhelmingly large amount of evidence and witnesses involved in this case, how do you believe that she and her associates are innocent?

Ahh that was a bit of a give away I will resist the urge to name thee, forums and Blogs are not the place to wage a personal war against people that we know or have associations with. In fact people who right slanderous or victimising comments quotations remarks or other forms of bastardizations are themselves committing a criminal offence.

The ACT courts are a joke. They were given extra money in the last budget to cover the costs of an extra Judge being brought into the system to take the load off and hasten the rate that the cases before the courts were being heard. To the public looking in, nothing seems to have changed. More public monies wasted to fund yet another local quick fix that won’t can’t work.

Interestingly enough though, If you were to be related to one of our Honorable Justices. Let’s say for example a daughter or son. And say you were to be found in possession of an illegal substance lets say ICE. Let’s say this isn’t the first time, and won’t be the last. You get your case heard very quickly, and you spend next to no time at all locked up.
Everything is rushed through and dealt with in the most extraordinary way, so as to cause the Justices the least amount of credibility damage and embarrassment. It would seem that in these cases Justice is not Blind, and in fact is bias in the extreme , It would to the outsider who wasn’t in on the Chambers Gossip ,seem that there is one set of rules for ordinary everyday Australians ,and a completely different set, for the relatives of our Judges and Justices. Also interestingly enough, you then see the same justice/judge sitting in judgment of either the co-accused or other related cases. And our courts say that there are no conflicts of interest when question. Judge Judy we need you, she wouldn’t let our courts run this way. No crapp in her Chambers, each case looked at Judged and sentenced on its own merit. And certainly no special treatments. Maybe our Chief Minister needs to make our Justices all sit down and watch a season or two.

“I might add the Justice system that is letting these same people down”

Please – you are kidding, right?

“Who of you that accuse and condemn have actually met or spoken to any of these people children. I am talking to one now whom I might add is horrified, distressed and upset that you should be saying such horrid nasty things about their parents. Please grow up”

Maybe tell the kids to stop googling mum’s name if they don’t want to see nasty comments…

What an interesting group of comments, I have seen a lot of these people who are so quick to introduce the death penalty in Australia for this one person.(At this time)These inocent people whom have had no guilt or criminal activities or associations with criminals, these squeaky clean angels.
I dread to see your reflections in the mirror. It has been my personal experience that a lot of you are regular ice users, and indeed often some of you are even dealers. It would be interesting to see your facebook friends list ?
Careful with the finger pointing, name calling and accusations, no one has as yet been found guilty of anything. Again more often than not those, whom point the finger the longest and hardest, will have ten pointing back at them.
Yes I totally agree that these people are not Angels and have done some ill in the past, but who has the right besides the Justice system to Judge them. I might add the Justice system that is letting these same people down.
Who of you that accuse and condemn have actually met or spoken to any of these people children. I am talking to one now whom I might add is horrified, distressed and upset that you should be saying such horrid nasty things about their parents. Please grow up.
Again I say a justice system letting these people down, has recently released on bail people with much stronger cases against them and certainly heavier charges. Maybe there is some bias towards these people in your comments I hope not.
Let the people out whom should be ,let those who are the true fiends here be locked up for good.

They should lock her up for good. In fact, save the ACT some money and put a bullet in her. She was involved in much more than one kidnapping and she was sending Massey and his mate to do her standover work.

Give her and Masseys kids to better families who cannot have children so the kids can at least have a normal upbringing and not end up like their parents.

These people are scum.

You would like the justice system to put a bullet in a women? Fascist. Capital punishment would make our justice system not much better than the ‘scum’.

If you knew more about this case and those involved, then you would say the same. I stand by my comment as this lady is a leech on society.

it does highlight the terrible state of the justice system in the ACT.

A legacy of typical stanhopian disregard and apathy.

What are you trying to say PBO

ireckonpolicedoag “I wonder how much court time is wasted with all this. I wonder how much police time is wasted?”
Id guess a lot less then if she was free.

” Aggressive dogs” Sharpies. Sharon Stott trained them to be very aggressive and named one of them “C*nt”.

ireckonpolicedoagood 4:57 pm 24 Sep 10

Wow, crazy story! Good work by the Canberra police for ending peacefully what sounds like a nasty siege with kidnappers, aggressive dogs and bombs! I am sure the victim really appreciated how good these Police were. Why do we ridicule them by calling them “black pyjama brigade” when they did such a good job?

I read that decision thing saying her bail was rejected. I’m not very good with all that fancy legal talk but it says she made 6 applications for bail when a magistrate already said no? How many times are you allowed to apply? I wonder how much court time is wasted with all this. I wonder how much police time is wasted? Its funny that all this court time is being used up by the offender and then she is complaining that she should be let out because of delays in court! I wonder if anyone else finds this strange?

I think that decision thing says she was originally not given bail because she was already on bail? Did I read this right? why can she apply then? It even says that her story as to why she should have bail changed from the application and then changed during the hearing? why did the magistrate even listen to all this if the offender didn’t even know the reasons why they wanted bail? Can you just make stuff up like that on the fly?

Its all very confusing if you ask me, I reckon the police did a good job though.

I expect the black pyjama brigade is the SRS Tactical Response officers as mentioned in the linked story.

So why do our Politicians cower under the banner of “judicial Independence” and refuse to fix this town’s legal system? It blatantly isn’t working either in terms of efficiency, organisation or by any other measurement. All we get a collection of Greens who contribute nothing to anybody, a labour party who wax lyrical about voters rights while sending our money to Pakistan and a Liberal party who are absent without leave. IT NEEDS FIXING!!!
