What a laugh the rich and famous must have at us normal folks.

Drink and drive, no probs,

No licence no probs,

Multiple driving infringements and penalties, no probs.

Hire a so called celebrity lawyer, bang some heads and get of for sweet FA!

Oh my mail has been stolen for 10 years, I didn’t get the fines. REALLY.

You managed to get the invites to B grade red carpets arrive…Selective these thieves who steal useless mail! We used to say there are 2 sets of rules,

I am no longer sure how many sets they are. The rich (and de-facto rich via marriage) seem to have magic powers when dealing with magistrates. Especially in SYDNEY.

It is outrageous a women with her driving record was dealt with this way. The DPP better appeal or they will be dealing the the precedent of J. Meares forever more ( not that that means much) Continue reading

The daughter of former New South Wales premier Neville Wran has been charged with murder over a stabbing death in the inner Sydney suburb of Redfern.

Harriet Wran, 26, was arrested along with Michael Lee, 35, in Liverpool on Wednesday afternoon.

Overnight, both were charged with murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter.

They will face court today accused of killing Daniel McNaulty, 48, who was stabbed to death on Sunday outside a public housing block in Redfern.

Police said the arrests were made after a red hatchback was found in the Sydney suburb of Waterloo.

On Tuesday night, Lloyd Haines, 28, was also charged with murder over the stabbing.

A 42-year-old man who was critically injured in the attack remains in a stable condition in St Vincent’s Hospital.

Mr Wran, who led NSW from May 1976 to July 1986, died in April.

Harriet Wran is the second youngest of the former premier’s five children.

THE daughter of former premier Neville Wran was last night charged with murder over the stabbing death of a man at a Redfern unit block.

Harriet Wran, the youngest daughter of the former Labor state leader, who died at the age of 87 on April 20, was yesterday confirmed by police as a person of interest in the murder of 48-year-old Daniel McNulty and the stabbing of another man, Brett Fitzgerald.

She was charged early this morning with murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter.

She will appear in Liverpool Local Court today.

MURDERED MAN A TRUE GENTLEMAN, FAMILY SAYS

TOP LEGAL EAGLE ON THE CASE FOR HARRIET

NEVILLE WRAN’S WILL LEFT A $40m FORTUNE

Fronting media this morning, Mr Terracini said bail would not be applied for.

“We are not going to make a bail application tomorrow,” Mr Terracini said.

“It will be a five minute job, we turn up, bail will be refused, won’t be applied for.”

The former University of Sydney student, and goddaughter of Kerry Packer, handed herself into Cabramatta Police Station just after 5pm, along with a 30-year-old man, Michael Lee, who was also wanted for questioning.

Lee was also charged with murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter, and will appear at Liverpool Local Court today.

The shock twist came just hours after 29-year-old Lloyd Edward Haines yesterday faced Parramatta Local Court for the murder of Mr McNulty on Sunday night.

Senior police sources confirmed to The Daily Telegraph that Wran, 26, and a 30-year- old man of Asian appearance were wanted in connection with the double stabbing at the Walker St unit block.

In a statement announcing Haines’ arrest, police said they were looking for a man and woman also believed to be inside the apartment at the time.

McNulty died at the scene shortly after paramedics were called about 7.45pm, while Mr Fitzergerald was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital with multiple stab wounds. His condition is stable.

Wran was wearing jeans and a blue shirt at the time of the arrest, and had her brown hair worn up, police say.

Detectives yesterday went to the family home in Woollahra in search of Wran, but neither Harriet or her mother Jill, Mr Wran’s wife of more than 30 years, were home, leaving the youngest child Hugo, 23, to try to contact his family.

“I’ve been informed, that’s all, sorry I can’t answer any questions,” he told The Daily Telegraph last night.

Jill Wran was last night ­organising to return to Sydney from Brisbane to support her daughter.

Harriet and her younger brother Hugo, the youngest of Mr Wran’s four children, read poems during a state memorial service for their father, who died aged 87 after a long struggle with dementia.

The siblings sat side by side in the front row of the Sydney Town Hall for the service for their father, who served as NSW premier from 1976 to 1986. Harriet read a Shakespearean sonnet at the ­funeral, following speeches from former prime minister Paul Keating and Bob Carr.

Haines, who handed himself into police, did not appear in the dock of Parramatta Local Court and his bail was formally refused on charges of murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter.

His case returns to Parramatta Court on October 9.

update 20/07/14

GERARD Baden-Clay was wheeling and dealing behind bars to gain up to $2 million if he’d been acquitted of murdering his wife Allison.

The day before the remorseless killer was found guilty, he bragged to prison guards he would soon be a free man.

And he was set to be a wealthy one too.

Baden-Clay would have walked out to a media deal of at least $600,000, negotiated by his family as he awaited trial.

He also would have collected up to $1 million from his wife’s insurance policies and $440,000 from selling a Gold Coast investment property he had owned with his wife.

Behind the scenes, TV producers flew up to Brisbane to woo the Baden-Clays with huge sums of money if he walked and talked.


 

Allison Baden-Clay’s family make plea as Gerard’s lawyers launch appeal against murder conviction

9 hours ago July 18, 2014

WIFE-killer Gerard Baden-Clay is prolonging the agony of Allison’s family and friends, appealing his conviction just two days after being sentenced.

He claims the jury was “unreasonable” when they found him guilty of murdering his wife and that a “miscarriage of justice” had occurred.

The challenge will likely take more than six months to get to court.

Last night Allison’s family told of their anguish at the appeal.

“It’s been a difficult time for the family, just let her rest in peace,” one of Allison’s relatives said

Baden-Clay was condemned in court by Justice John Byrne for using his wife’s struggles with depression in an attempt to beat the murder charge.

Baden-Clay’s defence team of barrister Michael Byrne QC and solicitor Peter Shields filed the paperwork yesterday shortly before midday.

The appeal claimed a miscarriage of justice occurred because the jury should have been directed the presence of Allison Baden-Clay’s blood in her car was only relevant if the jury was satisfied beyond reasonable doubt it could only have got there from an injury that occurred on the night she died.

It also argued the trial judge should have directed the jury that they needed to be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt Baden-Clay took his wife’s body to Kholo Creek in order to use it as “post offence conduct going to guilt’’.

Baden-Clay’s legal team also claimed the judge should not have told the jury they could consider whether he had “attempted to disguise marks on his face’’ by making razor cuts.

Lawyers are given one month to lodge an appeal. It would then be listed for hearing in the Court of Appeal.

Appeal notices are usually subject to significant refinement before written outline of arguments are lodged closer to the hearing date.

When the matter makes it to the court, Baden-Clay will appear before a panel of three judges. His lawyers will outline why they believe the trial failed and the Crown will respond.

If he is successful, he could be acquitted or the case could be tried again.

Gerard Baden-Clay launches appeal against murder conviction

Lawyers for Gerard Baden-Clay have filed an appeal against his murder conviction.

On Tuesday a Supreme Court jury found the 43-year-old Brisbane man guilty of killing his wife Allison in April 2012.

He was sentenced to life in prison, with a non-parole period of 15 years.

He has appealed against his conviction on four grounds, including that the verdict of murder was unreasonable, and that:

“A miscarriage of justice occurred because the jury should have been, but was not, directed that the presence of the deceased’s blood in a motor vehicle was only relevant if the jury was satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the presence of blood was attributed to an injury sustained to the deceased’s body on the evening of 19 April 2012 or the morning of 20 April 2012,” the application reads.

“The trial judge erred in law in not directing the jury that they needed to be satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the appellant placed the body of the deceased at Kholo Creek in order to use such a finding as post-offence conduct going to guilt.

“The trial judge erred in leaving to the jury that the appellant attempted to disguise marks on his face by making razor cuts.”

Who wants to be a unpaid crime blog reporter/contributer?


Not real journo’s who still have a job, maybe cadets (but not good for resume…mmm)

Maybe old school scribes who wish they could stay in the game!

How about folks like me with no relevant qualifications but gives a toss about the crimes in their communities?

The pay-off is a verdict like today GBC cowardly wife killer.

People like me? You relate to how I write?

Hey cant spell well, 2 finger typer…So am I YES…Our stuff gets checked before we post.

Sounds like you?

GOOD keep reading

This site has had massive coverage lately (I cover non famous crimes too)

I’m thinking along the lines of a Co-ordinator in each state

That co-ordinator runs that states crimes and has authors who get the stories up.

What do you think?

Sound good, bad, troublesome, confusing?

All I want is to give the best coverage of what is going on in our communities.

The community expectations has/have?  outgrown my skills honestly…

Each state, minimum deserves better coverage. The good people email me why haven’t you covered this rape, or that kidnapping, or the death of a cousin in my indigenous community.

You could help us!
