Darko Desic New Trial?
Darko Desic New Trial? – Desic was sentenced to an additional two months in prison on Thursday, on top of the remainder of his initial term, by Magistrate Jennifer Atkinson, who cited his repentance, regret, and help to authorities.
Desic had been rehabilitated in the previous 29 years, according to Ms Atkinson, and had no additional criminal records prior to or after the two instances of cannabis growing.
“But for handing himself in, the police would have had no idea where he was or what had happened,” Ms Atkinson said. “These are factors that count strongly in his favour.”
She gave Desic a two-month term, which will begin on October 30, 2022, when the non-parole period for his first sentence expires.
Ms Atkinson expressed her gratitude to Desic, who appeared in court via video connection, for having “a really difficult experience over the years,” including being unable to receive support services owing to his position as an escaped prisoner.
Desic’s lawyer, Paul McGirr, said his client just received information from Border Force that when his term finishes, he would be deported or placed in immigration detention.
Outside of court, Mr McGirr expressed his belief that the deportation notice was generated mechanically and expressed his desire that it may be reconsidered. He stated that he will continue to seek clemency for his client from the Attorney General.
Desic told police that his escape was due to a fear he would be deported to his native Yugoslavia, where he had evaded the required military service.
