People smuggling – Commonwealth appeal

Fisher Dore Lawyers

Fisher Dore acted for Mr L, who was pleaded guilty to facilitating the bringing to Australia of a group who were non-citizens and who travelled to Australia without visas. Mr L was sentenced to 6 years imprisonment with a non-parole period of 3 years.

The Commonwealth DPP appealed against sentence on a number of grounds relating to the sentencing judge’s errors. The Court of Appeal was persuaded by the CDPP that the sentencing judge inaccurately treated certain factors, and allowed the appeal. A non-parole period of 4 years was substituted for the period of 3 years.
