What a week it has been in the Courts.
A 14 year old was sentenced for murder. A recidivist drink driver was sentenced to home detention. A 39 year old woman was sentenced for a brutal and violent home invasion. All crimes committed against more innocent victims!
Without exception in all of these cases, justice has not been done! Our Justice System has once again failed the Victims.
Gavin Hawthorn was sentenced on his 12th drink driving charge. He received a pitiful sentence of 6 months home detention, 180 hours community service and disqualified from holding or obtaining a license for 2 years.
Hawthorn has a long history of horrendous offending. He has more than 60 prior convictions including burglary, assault and disorderly behaviour. But the worst offences, and something vitally important is that he is responsible for the death of 4 innocent victims.
