Man avoids jail for charges of larceny at Burwood Local Court

Our client, a 52 year old man has avoided jail time for stealing offences at Burwood Local Court.

Our client, a 52 year old man who works as an electrician, was facing charges of larceny from stealing large amounts of groceries from a popular supermarket in Sydney. A charge of larceny could carry up to 5 years imprisonment, depending on the circumstances.

Our client had no prior criminal history and due to COVID, had started to suffer from financial difficulty that he couldn't keep under control. Our client had a family that relied on him and at the time, saw no other way. He was caught and charged by police as opposed to just receiving a fine and a ban.

After lengthy submissions on behalf of our client, the court agreed to not only impose a penalty other than imprisonment, but also agreed to not convict our client which allowed him to keep his job and put this matter behind him and move on.
