“F**king dog”: Drug accused’s shot at Magistrate

Share this story

Joshua Stephen O’Shea has been bail refused on drug charges.

O’Shea stands accused of supplying more than the indictable quantity of a prohibited drug and also dealing with the proceeds of crime.

Despite offering two sureties and his lawyer arguing a term of imprisonment if convicted was not “guaranteed”, Magistrate Geoff Hiatt denied bail.

He said it was a reasonably strong prosecution case and a lengthy custodial sentence would likely be imposed.

“F**king dog,” O’Shea swore as he departed the video suite.

“Thank you, have a nice day,” Magistrate Hiatt quipped in response.

His matter is set down for hearing on January 28.
