County Court 2010
In 2010, Stephanie Scully was called to attend County Court on charges of Culpable Driving for the motorcycle accident as a result of which Ringo Brown died. Having heard evidence from Dr Doug Harris regarding her post-natal depression along with witnesses Kate Ramsay and Libby Kennedy on the accident and the period preceding this, the jury found Stephanie guilty. Despite a heartfelt plea from Ringo's widow, Donna, Judge Nerida Willow felt a responsibility to send a message to the community that driving under the influence of alcohol is absolutely unacceptable and sentenced Steph to six years imprisonment with a minimum non-parole period of two years.
• The building used as the courthouse was Springvale City Hall, 397-405 Springvale Road, Springvale, Victoria, 3171.
