Steelie Morgan

   Posted by: Bozwell   in Bozwell, In The news, Law and Order, sentencing, victims

Have you heard of recidivist criminal Steelie Morgan? If you’re like me, up until a few days ago you won’t have.

If you’re like me, and you had by chance heard about this on the Neil Mitchell programme the other morning, and immediately scoured the internet for more, you would have come up with precious little…

One or two brief news articles at best, no editorials, nada, ziltch, nothing.

Anyway, Morgan has essentially gone unpunished by the Supreme Court of Victoria having committed EIGHT counts of causing injury intentionally, ONE count of threat to kill, TWO counts of common law assault and ONE count of false imprisonment.

12 counts in total.

EIGHT counts of causing injury intentionally @ 10 years maximum for each count = 80 years
TWO counts of common law assault @ 5 years maximum for each count = 10 years
ONE count of threat to kill @ 10 year maximum = 10 years
ONE count of false imprisonment @ 10 year maximum = 10 years

In total, Morgan was facing a maximum combined penalty of 110 years in prison.

His original sentence of 18 months was appealed.

Why?

Because it was deemed to be too harsh.

TOO HARSH…18 months is too harsh.

On appeal, after having served 7 months in prison, the Supreme Court of Victoria has released him, suspending the remainder of his sentence.

RELEASED HIM.

I urge you to read the Supreme Court of Victoria Court of Appeal decision dated 19th February 2010…

Steelie Morgan Supreme Court Decision

It doesn’t take long and it’s well worth it.

A good solicitor can make ALL the difference.

Skin color may also be a contributing factor.

Some rapists aren’t even getting convictions recorded against them after being found guilty. Thanks Alp/Lib/Nat/Gre for helping our do-gooder judges screw up our justice system.
