Teen raided girls’ school

June 27, 2017 | By More

An 18-year-old youth has been released on supervision for his raid on bicycles and lockers at Rangi Ruru Girls’ School in Merivale.

Fabian Te One O’Sullivan’s pre-sentence report writer did not want him to have community work and mix with older offenders there, his Christchurch District Court sentencing was told.

Defence counsel Nicola Hansen said O’Sullivan was 17 at the time of the first offending, and the grandmother he lived with had just died. He was left with a frozen bank account.

Judge Tony Couch said he was sentencing O’Sullivan on seven theft charges.

On November 30 he stole an iPod, a speaker, and shoes from an unknown person.

Between February 11 and 13, with co-offenders, O’Sullivan stole five bikes from a locked bicycle compound,  and a pair of shoes from a locker at the school. Some of the bikes were recovered.

He said O’Sullivan had no previous convictions, and because he had not breached the bail curfew he had been on for three months, he was adopting the pre-sentence report writer’s recommendations.

He sentenced O’Sullivan to 10 months’ supervision, and ordered him to pay reparation of $1988.
