The following matters were dealt with in the Young Local Court by Magistrate Peter Dare S.C. on Tuesday, December 4, 2012.
Zacharie Matthew Williams (18) of Chums Lane, Young was found guilty of driving with a midrange concentration of alcohol, for an offence committed on November 3, 2012 in Young.
Williams, who is a carpet layer and a keen sportsman, had been at a party in Elizabeth Street, Young where he shared a carton of beer between three people.
After fights broke out at the party, he and a friend left but were unable to find a taxi.
Williams then made the decision to drive at his friend’s suggestion, as he had consumed less alcohol than the friend. Police pulled them over shortly afterwards.
“Your licence is not a right but a privilege,” Magistrate Dare told Williams. “I just wish the youth in the nearby country towns would realise this.”
He was convicted, fined $250 plus $83 court costs and had his license disqualified for six months from the date the offence was committed.
Brian Nathan Munn (33) of Berthong Street, Young was found guilty of dishonestly obtaining financial advantage by deception, for an offence committed on October, 26 2012.
Munn used his now ex-partner’s debit card to purchase $178.95 worth of Xbox items over a live service without her permission.
He was not convicted on the condition he enter a 12-month good behaviour bond. He was not ordered to pay back the money but said he would do so anyway.
Jacob Robert Paterson (18) of Back Creek Road, Young was found guilty of maliciously damaging property, for an offence committed on the evening of September, 21, 2012 in Young.
According to police facts tendered in court, Paterson smashed the windscreen of a Holden Commodore Sedan after drinking with friends at the Young Services Club on the weekend he had turned 18.
“I just did something stupid that I shouldn’t have done,” Paterson told the court.
He was convicted and fined $250, plus court costs.
According to police facts tendered in court, the owner of the vehicle sought compensation but Paterson was not ordered to pay it.
