Let­ter leads to pri­son term

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

WHIT­SUN­DAY woman Sa­man­tha Few­ings just wanted to help a mate out af­ter he was caught un­law­fully us­ing a boat owned by the so­cial club on Day­dream Is­land.

The Dis­trict Court in Mackay heard Few­ings, 29, a chef, had used so­cial club sta­tion­ary to write a let­ter au­tho­ris­ing her friend's use of the ves­sel. This caused a po­lice charge against the man to be dropped. It was later re­in­stated and the man was fined $450 for the il­le­gal use of the ves­sel.

Few­ings pleaded guilty to at­tempt­ing to pervert the course of jus­tice by pro­duc­ing a false doc­u­ment.

She was sen­tenced to four months im­pris­on­ment fully suspended.
