Media release: NSW (BISSON): 18 month good behaviour bond for offences against the Criminal Code

Thursday, June 15, 2017

Mr Jeffrey BISSON of Thornton, New South Wales, was sentenced on 1 June 2017 after pleading guilty to two offences of producing false or misleading documents to his bankruptcy trustee.

Mr Bisson filed for voluntary bankruptcy in September 2012.

On 9 June 2014, Mr Bisson received an early termination payout of over $140,000 from his former employer.

Mr Bisson provided a PAYG Payment Summary for the financial year ending 30 June 2014 to his trustee knowing that it was false or misleading as it hid the payout. 

He also provided a bank statement in a format that he knew was misleading, in that it did not show the deposit of the payout into his bank account.

Mr Bisson entered a plea of guilty at the Maitland Local Court.

The Court found the offences proven and convicted Mr Bisson before releasing him on a $1500 good behaviour bond for eighteen months.

The matter was prosecuted by the Office of the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecution on behalf of the Australian Financial Security Authority.
