To: The Intake Officer, ADHC, Northern NSW

RE: David Garner DOB 12/06/1985

I act for Mr Garner in relation to his criminal matters and contact you with Mr Garner's authority. A copy of Mr Garner's authority has been scanned and is attached to this email. The purpose of this email is to refer Mr Garner to you for case management and assessment for other services.

Mr Garner is displaying behaviours that have led to his involvement in the criminal justice system. He is also at imminent risk of entering a more restrictive option, that is, prison. I understand that these circumstances give Mr Garner priority according to ADHC's Prioritisation and Allocation Policy and Criminal Justice Manual. Mr Garner requests that ADHC offer him assistance.

In relation to ADHC eligibility criteria I attach the following document:

  • Psychological assessment of Sally Rowling, dated 25 May 2005

Mr Garner had difficulties understanding the court proceedings today and had difficulties in responding to questions. He is currently in receipt of the Disability Support Pension and came to court alone today. In addition to this referral, I have also referred Mr Garner to the Criminal Justice Support Network (CJSN) for support for his next court appearance.

Mr Garner's current contact details are as follows:

Telephone Number:

Mr Garner's matters are next before Coffs Harbour Local Court on Wednesday 27 November 2012 but are unlikely to be finalised on that day. I would be pleased to recieve an update of your progress in relation to your processing of this referral for Mr Garner in advance of his next court date.

Please contact me as a matter of urgency via return email or telephone to advise how ADHC will proceed with this referral.

Yours faithfully
