Georgia-Mae Chung secures re-sentence to identical community order for client accused of multiple aggressive probation breaches

01/05/2024

Georgia-Mae Chung’s client had admitted two breaches of his community order consisting of aggressive conduct towards his probation officer. Georgia-Mae secured an identical community order for him when he was re-sentenced.

The first breach consisted of the defendant behaving in an aggressive and threatening matter during a probation appointment. The second involved him sending a series of abusive text messages to his probation officer threatening to wait outside his office and harm him.

The hearing was originally listed for trial in relation to the text messages. Georgia-Mae won the trust of her client, after which he admitted both breaches. Following Georgia-Mae’s mitigation, the court revoked his current community order and re-sentenced him to a new community order with the identical requirement of rehabilitation activity requirement days. No costs were ordered.

Georgia-Mae, who commenced her second six at the beginning of April, was instructed by Joanna Barham of Taylor Haldane Barlex Solicitors LLP.
