MR LITCHFIELD: (Upset) Yes, Sir.
JUDGE JARMAN: It means that as long as you comply with this order you will not have to serve that sentence, but you must comply with the terms of the order.

MR LITCHFIELD: Yes, Sir.

MR GRIGG: No, your Honour.
JUDGE JARMAN: Anything else from you, Mr Shanahan?
MR SHANAHAN: No, thank you.
JUDGE JARMAN: Right. Thank you both very much for your assistance. I do hope that this will be the last this court hears about this difficult situation.
