Earlier this month we reported on the repulsive Tracey Lee Buggy who wasn’t rich enough so decided to help herself to our money via centrelink.

The ABC is now reporting that being caught has been puishment enough, and Tracey isn’t going to the pokey.

In sentencing Tracey Lee Buggy, Justice Malcolm Gray took into account defence submissions showing the 36-year-old from Wanniassa suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.

He told the ACT Supreme Court she had been mentally and emotionally disturbed and a prison term could hinder her rehabilitation.

Number plate slogans?

“Canberra – Where Crime Pays”
or perhaps
“Feel the power of Canberra’s judicial system”

come to canberra and committ crime – we wont lock you up.

put that on a numberplate stanhope

I abhore the fact that she has only been required to pay back what she has defrauded out of the system. She should have in the least least been made to pay a fine as a reprimand not to do it again.

PTSD my ass.

The only trauma she had was getting caught, everybody else in the cell with her has suffered that paticular ailment.

Did she even get a fine?
Are we paying for this compusory councelling and therapy she is having???

financial Kleptomaniac? she should be stripped of the assets that made her secure. and slammed in the pokey. as for ptsd its a legal smoke screen for the legaleagles, to utilise as to claim full benifits for winning the case.and find another exasperating avenue to further soften the system.

Ps whos repping the plaintiff? they should be shot!

ok so some poor shmo with less than 500 in the bank i can understand as it it urban survival , but this bogan wasnt out of pocket and counting the beans in the tin/ slices in the loaf. she was in a house that was being refurbished, prolly with a seriously nice car and good foods as well.

she isnt sorry that she took the funds, its more the case she is sorry that she has been caught out and her arrogance has been exposed.
