Nature and Circumstances: Offender and co-offender were not principles in the operation. Offender has been on tobacco leaf farm for about two weeks and was being paid $170 a day. Excise foregone on the tobacco at the property was around $3.1 million.  

Parity: Only distinguishing factor between offender and co-offender was offender’s asserted lack of remorse on the basis that they failed to engage in the the Sentence Assessment process. Offender has already served more than 3 months in custody while co-offender served 3 months in custody.  

Offender sentenced to recognisance release order for 12 months.
