Theft of Motor Vehicle – CCO Without Conviction

Our client was a gainfully employed man in his early 40’s. He was charged with theft of a motor vehicle due to his presence at the time when the offending occurred. Our client was not the principal offender.

Dee Giannopoulos represented our client at the Broadmeadows Magistrates’ Court.

Our client was sentenced without conviction to a 6-month community corrections order with a condition that he completes unpaid community work. Lost of licence for 3 months was also imposed at the Magistrate’s condition.

This was a good result as the charge could have resulted in imprisonment. The without conviction sentence also means that the client will not have a criminal record for this offending.
