Contravene CCO Originally Imposed for Aggravated Burglary

GavelThis is a case study on a charge of Contravene CCO originally imposed for Aggravated Burglary.

Our client was charged with not complying with their Community Corrections Order (CCO) after being released from custody, which is an offence that carries a period of imprisonment. The client originally received the CCO in relation to charges of Aggravated Burglary.

For the Contravene CCO charge, Alex Turner provided legal representation at the Sunshine Magistrates Court.

The magistrate hearing the case indicated in open court that her starting point for a breach of this order was a further period of imprisonment for the client given the seriousness of the charges for which the client received the order. This would have had a catastrophic effect not only on our client but also their family.

The matter proceeded as a plea of guilty to Contravene a Community Corrections Order.

Assisted by Kate Da Costa’s excellent preparation of the file, Alex’s persuasive advocacy skills were able to make it possible for the client to be given a further opportunity on the order and to completely avoid any period of further imprisonment. Her Honour convicted and fined the client $1,200 for the charge of Contravene CCO originally imposed for Aggravated Burglary and the CCO was varied and extended with the same conditions for a further 12 months.
