No Prison for $270,000 Fraud


Sydney Criminal Lawyers persuaded the Presiding Judge in Downing Centre District Court to impose a 2 year ‘suspended sentence’ (no prison) for a 46 year old man who defrauded his employer of $270,000 over an 8 month period.

The Presiding Judge made the decision after considering a range of factors, including our client’s attendance at counselling to address an underlying gambling addiction, partial repayment and the dire consequences upon him and his family of a prison sentence.
