Accused booted back to Victoria

A MAN will be back behind bars in Victoria today after his extradition was granted in Bundaberg Magistrates Court yesterday.

The 19-year-old, who cannot be named because he was considered a child at the time he committed the offences, was on parole after being released from the Melbourne Youth Justice Centre in June last year.

A team of Victorian police appeared in court with a warrant for the man’s arrest and extradition.

He violated the terms of his parole when he left Victoria.

Defence lawyer Thomas Bray said his client was aware of the warrant out for his arrest and what the extradition application meant.

“If the warrant was properly executed there is no objection to it and no application for bail,” he said.

Magistrate Jennifer Batts granted the order.
