Property, Causing Injury, and Driving Offences

This is a case that involves multiple charges related to property, causing injury, and driving offences.
Our client pleaded guilty to a raft of offences including thefts of motor vehicles. The offending was protracted which occurred over some 14 months. He was remanded and served 5 months and 2 weeks in gaol by way of pre-sentence detention.
Tyson Manicolo acted on the client’s behalf at the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court. The charges were:

During the plea, Tyson satisfied the sentencing magistrate that, despite the client’s prolific offending, the client demonstrated a willingness to rehabilitate himself given that he used his time in custody effectively. Tyson also added that the client’s partner gave birth whilst he was in custody and that this gave him an extra incentive to “get his life on track”. Further, Tyson made submissions about the client’s “youthfulness” and reminded the magistrate that rehabilitation is germane to the sentencing process.
Ultimately, the magistrate was satisfied that the time served was an appropriate sentence for the property, causing injury, and driving offences. The client was then released on a Community Correction Order.
