My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise Please understand this is not legal advice but a guide to assist you.
Here is the section and each count carries a maximum of 5 years imprisonment.
Because you have pleaded guilty this will be in your favour.
Because you have done it 8 times and you are in a position of trust the court will deal with it more harshly than if you stole from someone that you did not know.
The following link is a case where $51K was stolen and in that case the court gave 3 years jail.
Because this was run the court did not show any leniency. If you plead guilty the court will show more leniency.
I cannot say you will not go to jail but you have to show remorse and also provide character references to support them not giving you a jail term.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
