1. The magistrate imposed a sentence of 15 months. He took into account your previous record, which I note is one for illegal remainingand also theft in 1993. There were no matters put forward in mitigation that led the magistrate to consider reducing the term. Iconsider the sentence to be proper and the sentence remains.
