Builder Carey gets 3 years in gaol, suspended after 12 months

Discount given for cooperation with authorities on further enquiries

 

Randal Carey, the builder in the failed Frampton New Homes scheme, was sentenced this morning to three years in gaol, to be suspended after 12 months. Mr Carey, who has been in custody since last Tuesday, did not show any visible emotion as guards led him away. He appeared to have no friends or family in court. His lawyer was appearing by video link from Darwin and said he would talk his client through the sentence by phone. KIERAN FINNANE reports.

Six years' gaol for waterhole shooter

For "effectively wrecking" a man's
life and that of his partner, Reuben Nadich, who shot his victim in the
back at Junction Waterhole on May 29 last year, was sentenced to six
years' imprisonment.  The shooting was at close range and without
provocation or reason.

Mr Nadich's "moral culpability" was equivalent to that for murder,
said Justice Judith Kelly in her sentencing remarks last Thursday. KIERAN FINNANE reports.
