Customer Question

Hi, my sister is going to court in less than a month because of receiving $36,000 in centrelink payments that she wasn't entitled to. She has a lawyer but for my piece of mind I want to know what are the chances of her being imprisoned? She has a prior conviction of fraud and theft over 7 years ago
JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Victoria
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: yes she is due to appear in court Dec 7th
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not at this moment
