Good Behaviour Bond for 2nd set of Fraud Charges within 3 Years

CRIMINAL CASE

The Magistrate in Downing Centre Local Court imposed a ‘section 9 Good Behaviour Bond’ on our 31 year old client for ‘dishonestly obtaining financial advantage’ under s192E despite it being his second set of serious fraud charges within a three year period.

Our client was employed as a credit team member with a city-based company that sells computer goods.

He dishonestly transferred 23 separate payments to his own bank account over a 10 month period for amounts averaging $3000 by claiming that they were client refunds.

The funds were mainly used to feed his gambling addiction.

Sydney Criminal Lawyers® had the 23 charges reduced to a single charge, had the ‘facts’ of the case amended and arranged for our client’s psychological counselling. We also prepared a repayment plan for the sums taken.

He thought he was headed for gaol because it was his second set of fraud charges within 3 years.

However, his case was thoroughly prepared and persuasively presented in court, resulting in the Magistrate ordering a 2 year Good Behaviour Bond conditional upon him regularly attending counselling.
