Barrister turns himself in after stealing 79 cents from fountain 20 years ago

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/new...ling-79-cents-from-fountain-20-years-ago.html

Simon Matters, now a barrister in Melbourne, was reportedly "highly embarrassed" about taking the coins as a 19-year-old in 1992.

He apparently grabbed the loose change, including some now defunct 2-cent coins, during a holiday at Surfers Paradise.

Mr Matters subsequently returned home to Melbourne and entered a career in the law.

Almost two decades later, he turned himself in to Queensland police and appeared before the Southport Magistrates' Court on charges of stealing and failing to appear in court.

The Gold Coast Bulletin newspaper reported that the Chief Magistrate, Ron Kilner, accepted Mr Matters' plea of guilty. The court ordered that Mr Matters not be punished and no conviction be recorded on his criminal record.

There is just no more justice in this world.

Seriously tho. What's the value of 79 Australian cents from '92 in 2012?

Could be worth quite a bit cause some of the coins aren't around anymore and could be considered collectors items. Not many people have 1 or 2 cent coins anymore and are extremely rare.

Agree with LC here, to an extent, wouldnt you say, some people are too naive *cough/stupid* to actually believe this was a real good act of will ?

There's still shitloads floating around. They're not that rare really.
