We are all one moment of madness and one wrong move away from falling from Grace
Agreed @SeaEagleRock8 Closer to premeditated attempted murder than wounding with intent IMO. Manase was extremely lucky not to be up for murder. Just remember what was reported in 2019. "Supreme Court Justice Stephen Rothman said the 24-year-old victim was “millimetres” away from being killed and said of the charges that “it’s as close to murder as you can get”. I think we need to focus more on the crime rather than finding excuses for the perpetrator.Yeah if you've made a decision to bring the weapon with you to the scene then it's hard to say it was all just spur of the moment.
For what it's worth, he's listed for sentencing at 2pm on 2nd Dec at Parramatta court.Do we know when this guy gets sentenced ? The poor bugger has waited 3 odd years for his day in court and now the sentence is dragging on and he cant appeal before he knows the sentence .
The good news isLife provides an never ending series of choices. Most of us improve our choices as we get older and more experienced. That however is not always the case and I have known those they have flushed their reputation and careers away later in life with one foolish decision. I expect he has been regretting his decision that night ever since. Whilst his footy career is done his life is not and I wish him well and hope he makes the right choices during the rest of his journey and he finds happiness. I find the attraction to the gangster persona curious and incredibility naïve. It never ends well for gangsters.
'optimistic'It never ends well for gangsters.
Not to defend the NRL's arbitrary cut-off line, but it is for players charged with offences that carry a maximum penalty of 11 - not what they ultimately get in court (which of course isn't known when they are charged, or even whether or not they are guilty). Manase's charge has a max of 25 years so the automatic standdown applied.If he gets 7yrs then he shouldn’t actually have been stood down by the nrl as I thought it was for offences warranting an 11yr plus sentence
Gang-related @Woodsie It involved an attempted collection of money owed for goods suppliedOne thing that still intrigues me is .. what was the motive? ... stabbing someone because they asked you to leave a church social seems a tad of an over-reaction .... did it just seem like a good idea at the time?
