No Jail - only fines
Quick update. We have just come out of court and are VERY excited. What can only be described as a small slap on the wrists, the 4 have emerged from court with only small fines, ranging from $1,250-$450 each.
The public gallery erupted into song, applause, cheers and hugs and the feeling of victory and vindication was in the air.
Justice Sally Thomas noted their good behaviour and co-operation in the sentencing decision.
"All four were very genuine in the cause they sought to espouse," said Justice Thomas, "however their actions - no matter for what cause - cannot justify the breaking of the law."
We are all about to celebrate - YAY!
