A client with no prior major driving offences was able to avoid a 12 month disqualification period for driving whilst disqualified. This was only in light of his good driving record and the Court accepting his honesty as to his misconceiving the directive from the police of his facing further charges if he failed to hand in his suspended drivers licence by a certain time. Living by himself somewhere with no public transport, and not able to get anyone to give him a lift, he actually drove to the police station to hand-in his licence! Hence the offence. Instead of a modest fine for being late to hand-in the licence, he would have faced an extra 12 months off the road. Fortunately for him, the court found the offence proven but entered no conviction on the basis of his entering a good behaviour bond for the same time as the disqualification for the offence for which his licence was suspended, namaely his drink driving. This was very out of character for him. He could have very easily walked home from the hotel but he had only recently come out of a couple of weeks in hospital and he mistakenly only thought of his own post-operative discomfort if he had to walk home from the hotel, and so he took his car to the hotel and drove it back.

The NSW State Government has made sweeping changes to compensation for Victims of Crime.
The bad news is that for most victims that compensation will be very modest
regardless of what type of injury has been sustained.
The good news is that the changes have seen waiting times for compensation drastically reduced and the system made far less complex.
