Dubbo MP Dawn Fardell has vowed to make known the Dubbo community’s anger at yesterday’s dismissal of hit and run charges.
“I will be contacting the State Attorney General to voice the anger of the Dubbo community over the callous way the family of the victim has been treated by this decision,” she said.
“This is certainly not the result expected by myself and our community.
“If the laws of the land have become too technical to allow the courts to make decisions on cases such as this, it is further proof that the victims are forgotten by our system.
“I call on the Attorney General to immediately review the procedural difficulties in this case in an effort to reintroduce safety and security for both victims and the wider community.
“The message to Dubbo youth is appalling: offend and re-offend, the system will not deal with you.
“The battle by parents to instil respect in our children is undermined by outcomes such as this one today.
“The parents are sending one message to their children and society is then countering these strong parental messages by providing escape routes for young offenders.
“The family has everyone’s sympathy at this time – a great disrespect has been paid to the community by the failure to pursue these charges.”
