DPP v Medworth [2017] VCE DET

Offences: affray and criminal damage.

Mr Medworth was involved in a fight with several males at a home in Geelong. He pleaded guilty to one charge of affray contrary to common law and one charge of criminal damage contrary to section 197(1) of the Crimes Act 1958 (Vic).

In determining the sentence, Her Honour Judge Gaynor considered, among other factors, Mr Medworth’s co-operation with law enforcement, early plea of guilty, remorse and young age (19).

Her Honour also had regard to the way the co-offenders were dealt with. Mr Medworth was ordered, without conviction, to pay a fine of $700 for each charge and $200 in compensation to a victim.
