Good Afternoon

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 but a guide to assist you.

There is no mandatory sentencing the 10 years is a maximum and the court can give less than that.

I hope this makes sense?
