Breach CCO – Extended
Our client had not complied with a Community Corrections Order and Corrections were recommending that the client be re-sentenced. This was a serious situation of Breach of CCO because the offences for which the client had been placed on the CCO included burglaries and other serious offences. This meant that if the client was to be resentenced, it would most likely mean that he would be sent to gaol.
We acted on the client’s behalf at the Sunshine Magistrates’ Court. He submitted that the client should be given another opportunity to comply with the CCO because of his young age, personal difficulties during the period of the order, and cognitive difficulties.
The magistrate agreed and had the CCO extended to 18 more months with the same conditions as the original order, except that there is now a judicial monitoring condition. This was a successful result as it gave our client another opportunity to comply with the order.
