Our 52-year old client from Sydney avoids a criminal record after pleading guilty to larceny at the Nowra Local Court

Our 52-year-old client from Sydney was charged with with Larceny pursuant to section 117 Crimes Act 1900.

Our client was working in Nowra at the time when she attended Woolworths for a short grocery shop.

Upon leaving the store, she was approached by police who suspected our client had not paid for some items. She immediately admitted to shoplifting various groceries and placing them in her handbag.

After looking up her details, police discovered that on two previous occasions, she was caught shoplifting. On each of those occasions, she was issued with an infringement notice and she ultimately paid the fines. This meant that she did not have to go to court.

On this occasion however, the police decided to issue her with a Court Attendance Notice at the Nowra Local Court.

Our client immediately contacted our office. A free first appointment was scheduled where our criminal defence team provided advice and guidance.

She was provided with a list of things to do on her end to get started with the preparations for court.

The matter was listed at the Nowra Local Court.

Our Criminal Lawyer Tayla Regan represented our client in the sentence proceedings in court.

A compelling case was developed and presented to the Magistrate at Nowra Court. Among the material used in court included, an apology letter and some well drafted character letters for court.

Ultimately, the hard work in preparing this case paid off. The court agreed to sentence our client without imposing a criminal record against her name even after pleading guilty to larceny.

The Court ultimately dismissed the offence of Larceny without a conviction.
