The Canberra Times has an amazing tale about Tracey Lee Buggy, 36, of Halfrey Circuit, Wanniassa who, despite having (with her husband) assets worth $2.3 million and a combined gross income of $250,000, managed to pry $73,000 out of Centrelink between 1997 and 2004.
Buggy said she thought if she had a nice home and car, and the image of “having it all”, the pain from three marriages, a family suicide and other personal crises would go away. She agreed she thought money would cure everything, but it had not.
Sentencing is 28 March. Speaking entirely hypothetically, what kind of sentence would you like to see?
