When police went through CCTV footage, they recognised Hodosi, as did the shop manager, as he was a regular customer./facepalm
Joe Hodosi, 25, has been jailed indefinitely because he is considered a "substantial" danger to the public following his third firearms offence.Yes, though the first two relate to an air rifle, this is clearly a man who isn’t firing on all cylinders…
In police interview he said he was in a "blue haze" at the time because he had taken valium, drunk half-a-litre of Southern Comfort, and could not remember the robbery.You’d think that sort of thing would stick in your mind, wouldn’t you?
Mitigating, Ramin Pakrooh urged Judge Carol Hagen to impose an extended sentence, instead of an indeterminate one for public protection saying his client had never seriously injured anyone, either during his latest crime or previous offences.Oh. Well, we’ll just wait until he does, shall we?
"There cannot have been a great deal of thinking," Mr Pakrooh said. "It's such an irrational offence, given what there was to gain and what there was to lose.
"He's never done anything on this scale before."
"It's quite apparent to me, not only from your letter but from the pre-sentence report, that you had an unimaginably hard and difficult childhood and upbringing and I have no doubt that is one of the reasons that you adopted the lifestyle that you did," Judge Hagen told Hodosi.No, it’s one of the excuses…
She passed an indeterminate sentence for public protection.Not sure what 6 years is going to do that his current 25 haven’t, mind you.
He cannot be considered for parole until he has served six years.
