"unsociable behaviour" - Legal advice required

Recommended Posts

Just got a summons in the mail for "unsociable behaviour" dropped to my door.

I have pretty much no recollection of the incident but it apparently involves me calling some dude I went to high school with a complete fuckwit, tipping a beer over his head and trying to kick a security guard in the balls while getting ejected.

 

I have court in May.

FUCK!

 

Anyone who knows me, knows this is pretty out of character :D

 

fuck these new victorian laws.

if i get a criminal record my job is pretty much over.

 

FUCK COPS.

 

end rant.

I was arrested at the time, but it was well over 6months ago, and i'd completely forgot about it.

I was about to say the same thing as gas....

Still might be a just a civil thing. Are you being "charged" with unsociable behavior?

Which court?

It will more than likely be a fine that you get.

Summary offense type shit.

Hopefully.

I've gotten public drunkenness tickets before and ended up paying a fine.

I dunno about those other ones though.

You're in Canada aren't you?

DUI's up there are felonies right?

You guys are wacky.

Good luck.

I'm from Australia not Canada. I've worked at this place for nearly 4 years.

This will be my 3 court appearance 2nd since i turned 18.

All had something to do with alcohol, and have done over 300 hours of community service and completed 2 responsible alcohol courses.

 

maybe it's time to give up drinking.

Every time I have ever been arrested it's been because of booze.

I stick to beer mostly now and make sure I'm with people who can keep me entertained enough to not get stupid drunk and do stupid shit anymore.

you're probably looking at some hefty fines man...i got picked up for punk in drublic last month, four hours in the nick and a $234 dollar fine. what the fuck is that, it used to be you do your 4 hours and thats it, none of this extra fine bullshit.

 

and go see legal aid, it's not too bad of a service. if you don't have any other convictions get some reference letters and wear a bag of fruit to court and try and apply for a diversion, it's an automatic finding of guilt but with no conviction recorded (although will still show up on police checks etc)

already used my 1 diversion my man, so that's not an option. and it's less than a year since my last court appearance.

 

FUUUUUU

Seek legal advice from a qualified professional.

 

1-3 I would think are all fines (at least here), on the spot or court determined. 4 might be worse, but probably only classified as a minor offense.

Penalties

 

These offences carry the following penalties if you are convicted:

 

* drunk in a public place: maximum of one penalty unit.

* drunk and disorderly:

o first offence – maximum of one penalty unit or three days prison

o second or subsequent offence: five penalty units or one month prison

* drunk and behaving in a riotous or disorderly manner – maximum of 10 penalty units or prison for two months.

 

 

2 months in jail because it's my second offense and they're claiming "attempted assault" is a disorderly manner?

surely not.

If its anything like the UK prosecution service, you could of killed the fuckwit, kicked the security guard in the face, and just for fun burnt the place to the ground, and you'd be walking free
