Prison in this case is both as punishment for her and to protect the rest of us from her. I don’t think she is showing that she is a particularly good role model for her daughter. No one so far has said can her and let dad take care of the girl.

If we still had stocks I wouls tomato Amber.

And what will be different when she comes out of prison – though it does make some people wakeup – but all to few? I have no argument with her being given an element of punishment, but in the end what do we, society want? Will she come out of prison better or worse? What are the effects on her daughter – who has no blame in this at all?

as to those who comments are limited to calling her a slag etc, well i feel sorry for your outlook on life. cant you put some decent points across without being verbally offensive?

“He opted against enforcing the two-year suspended sentence…” Why bother using a suspended sentence if sanctions won’t be imposed for breach of the conditions of that sentence?
The courts should be both a mechanism to enforce the law and a way to deter others from offending. Some deterrent, seeing a repeat and arguably serious offender get off lightly again and again. People get all huffy about Parish Hilton getting special treatment because she’s famous, well no hopers get it just as good it would seem.

In the paper this morning:”He [Chief magistrate Ron Cahill] opted against enforcing the two-year suspended sentence he handed down last month … however he foreshadowed a jail sentence of some months.”

lumnock, haven’t you seen neighbours ? she can have her daughter in gaol with her !

You people are f**king perverse, how can you cheer someone being sent to prison?

Notwithstanding her offences, and the fact it is sometimes inevitable that someone face a prison sentence, it is nothing to cheer about. Prison is an awful place.

Why don’t you take up a hobby (ie learn to read big words then find a good book) rather than sitting around salivating over the misfortunes of others?

and I hope they take her daughter from her too

Hang on, sorry to double post. Dad said that she was given a 2 year suspended sentence. She broke the conditions by taking drugs in the other week. They will sentence her again next Thursday, it is hopeful that she will get her suspended sentence issued.

We can only hope Ron makes the right decision.

Well, from my mum talking to people that work in the area they say 2 years. One can only hope. On second thought it may only be 2 or 3 months.

“Mr Cahill is likely to sentence Westin to two or three jail” – Just don’t know what the missing word is.

It would make sense to me months due to the fact that the most the ACT system can hand out it 2 years.

So while that sucks, be glad she is going to jail.

I can’t help thinking causing a death while evading police after skipping court is worth more than two years – perhaps ten?

Does anyone have a copy of the judgement? I’m really keen to know what the circumstances were that got her such a light sentence.

andym 8:33 pm 15 Jun 07

Yeah – she was given a chance and she pissed it away…silly girl. Still two years for killing someone……you could argue she is still getting off very lightly.

Vic Bitterman 8:33 pm 15 Jun 07

The slag will most likely get off with a slap on the wrists. Again.

asp 8:01 pm 15 Jun 07

2 Years? I hope that is correct, because on 2CC this afternoon, the newsreader said 2-3 months, which would be an appallingly light sentence.

If it is really 2 years, then Ron Cahill is a hero!
