Lawyer, Auckland

"Critically, the pre-sentence report writer and Crown were seeking Mr W to complete intensive supervision with compulsory residential rehabilitation. Mr W explained to the Court that he poured his heart out when doing the cultural report. The Judge observed the contents of the report and accepted that compulsory residential rehabilitation would hinder Mr W's prospects rather than help, noting the content of the report and oral submissions made. The Court acknowledged the quality and content of the report."
