This is not Mully Williams, this is just a tribute

By johnboy - 23 July 2010 28

The Canberra Times is sharing the hilarious antics as described in court of James Dudley March who has been sentenced after pleading guilty to stealing a Toyota Hilux and flipping it soon after.

March stole the car after drinking a beer on the way from a bottle shop to a friend’s apartment at the Stuart Flats in Griffith.

”I really don’t know why I did it, it was stupid and I never should have done it,” March told the court.

The statement of facts said March was driving erratically, hitting curbs on both sides of the street before flipping the car. The force of the impact caused one of the tyres to detach.

Duddles was at the time just eight days into a suspended sentence for 8 counts of burglary and theft (thank you ACT Judiciary for protecting the community so well).

But the best bit is he had the gall to stand up in front of the court and explain his actions thusly:

The former tyre fitter said he wasn’t thinking about the consequences of his actions at the time of the theft as he was grieving over the loss of friends Scott Oppelaar, Sam Ford, their baby Brody and Justin ”Mully” Williams.

This Disciple of the risen Mully will be returning to our streets to spread the word on 6 February 2011.

What’s Your opinion?

WHAT A JOKE, So far this person as stolen peoples valuables on 8 counts that can be proven, stolen some poor guys ute (probably a tradie just trying to provide for his family) Then goes and smashes 100 year old head stones … At a guess this is surely one of the people responsible for Woden’s Anglican lawn section grave destruction 2 years in a row as he was “grieving”. “But I wasn’t thinking about what I was doing sir” Sorry but not good enough. this toad doesn’t deserve anything but good old fashion justice. as suggested in other OP put him in stocks in the city I”m sure ALL the people who’s lives were affected by his “I didn’t know what I was doing x10 crimes” would love to throw rotten tomato’s at him and watch him freeze his a#*e off in minus 5.

One can only hope that this time he’ll actually succeed at doing a Mully and take out himself and a few of his mates with him. Mully’s my hero.

I know you’re being sartorial but the cocksucker killed a little baby boy.

Well, Justice Higgins, you sure do know how to rehabilitate these low-lige scum that appear in front of you. Thanks to you, James Dudley Marsh has been spending his spare time breaking up stones.

Yes, Justice Higgins, gravestones (http://the-riotact.com/st-johns-vandalism-charges-pending/48414). Thank you for your contribution to our society. You, sir, are a major part of the problem.

If you are going to get to the nitty gritty of things, perhaps the major contributor to these type of problems is the emergence of an underclass in Australia that is becoming increasingly disconnected from community. Justice Higgins might be working towards “including” these people in society rather than excluding them ie. give them opportunities to participate rather than resort to alienating them further. Locking them up is not going to fix the problem. Nor is chasing them at high speeds until they feel they have no choice but to go faster.

Hey, if he commits some more crime, perhaps they’ll let him out before he even goes in!

What’s the point of a suspended sentence, when if you head out and break the law, the sentence is not activated in full????

Even more importantly, why is the punishment for a second crime only having to do part of your punishment for the first crime? Surely committing a crime within 8 days of being sentenced for a previous crime warrants an additional punishment.

And what’s the bet that as soon as he walks out of the gates of heaven (aka AMC), he’ll be back in someone else’s car doing it all again.

One can only hope that this time he’ll actually succeed at doing a Mully and take out himself and a few of his mates with him. Mully’s my hero.

You must be new here – he got gaol time – from Higgins – this is a good outcome.

Jail time from Higgins = A minor miracle, yes.

But;

Chief Justice Higgins activated March’s suspended sentence of two years and three months, of which he will serve 11 months less time already served.

What’s the point of a suspended sentence, when if you head out and break the law, the sentece is not activated in full????

March said he planned on seeking grief counselling and alcohol treatment upon his release.

What, not while he’s, you know, in prison?

So a total of 17 months for four thefts and burglaries plus stealing a car and flipping it all over the road? man I’m wasting my time at university. Is it the defendant who is failing to learn from his crimes or the courts?

Chief Justice Higgins activated March’s suspended sentence of two years and three months, of which he will serve 11 months less time already served. He is scheduled for release on February 6, 2011.

Hang on a moment. If he did this in April and was arrested at the time, he would have served barely 3 months so far. Now according to my calculator 11 months minus 3 months is 8 months and my calendar has Feb 6 as barely 6.5 months from now.

Someone has finally moved the pile of junk ‘tribute’ – hubcaps, empty bottles and cans etc – that was marking the spot in Fyshwick where Mully committed his last crime. I thought that he might now fade into the obscurity he deserves. But no. His mate, James, obviously one of the intelligentsia, breathes life into him again.

Honestly, how on earth could is lawyer have kept a straight face while he trotted out that story to the Magistrate. ‘Your Honour, he stole a car and was drinking and driving because he was grieving the losses caused by the actions of his f*ckwitted mate who was driving like a lunatic in a stolen car and killed three other people as well as himself.’. I know lawyers act on instructions, but when that story is your instructions…

And The Risen Mully was moved, declaiming: “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Duds, and upon this cock I will build my church; and the gates of Symonston shall not prevail against it.”

Special G 12:23 pm 23 Jul 10

Any reason to get off a charge. The Judiciary probably took that into account and reduced his sentence because of it.

Dudley… hahahaha.

Oh, and thanks to the ACT justice system for protecting the community from people like this.
