Accused to know fate

IF you have done the crime, be ready to do the time.

This message was given by the Suva Magistrates Court to a man convicted of theft yesterday.

Isireli Tinaviti was charged with one count of theft, to which he pleaded guilty.

Tinaviti waived his right to counsel and opted to represent himself.

He admitted taking $7700 over a period of five days while dealing with money orders, and agreed with the police prosecution that the summary of facts read out in court was correct.

Tinaviti said he was sorry for his actions and sought the court's forgiveness.

When asked of his marital status, Tinaviti said he was married but had no children and looked after his parents.

Magistrate Alipate Mataitini said the court noted the accused was a first offender. Tinaviti's bail was extended and he was told to return to court on May 14 for sentencing.
