Leila's View

“I wondered why Kass just left the car in the drive and put the car keys under the door. He knows where the spare house key is and he usually sleeps on our couch after he goes out with the boys. I hope he hasn't used the car and got in trouble. Sonny will be so angry.”

Legal Advice

If you are the owner of a vehicle that is involved in a serious crime, and you were not the person driving it, you have a duty in NSW to disclose the details of the driver and the passengers of the vehicle. The only way out of this is if you have a reasonable excuse to not give that information.
