Appeal pending

A 27-YEAR-old Maffra man remains in custody after appealing against a 15-month prison sentence handed down in the Sale Magistrates’ Court by Magistrate Peter Dunn on August 26.

Jarrod Pennington, 27, of Maffra, was convicted of driving, theft, obtaining property by deception and theft of a motor vehicle offences, as well as being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

He was denied appeal bail, and his appeal will be heard in the County Court at a later date.
