Police v MH: Violence offence charges

Larceny, receiving stolen property, furnish false statement

MH was charged that she did, over a period of approximately 2 months, commit offences of dishonesty including stealing from shops and series of offences passing off stolen goods as her own.  MH pleaded guilty to the charges.

Upon sentencing, we placed a great deal of material before the Court in relation to MH’s psychological condition and the impact of that condition on the commission of offences.


Plea of guilty leads to no conviction and bond

Upon hearing submissions and considering the material before the Court, the Magistrate imposed a good behaviour bond for a period of 18 months pursuant to the provision of section 10(1)(b) of the Crimes (Sentencing Procedure) Act.

The effect of this position was that MH had no conviction for the offences to which she pleaded guilty.
