New court date for Scott after police refuse to cover legal fees

Curtis Scott’s legal case will return to court in July after a deal with police to drop five serious charges fell through.

The Raiders young gun’s legal team had reached an agreement with NSW Police to plead guilty to two of the non-serious charges in exchange for the other five to be dropped, but the deal came unstuck when police were asked to pay for his legal fees.

Scott’s case will go in for mention on July 13 in Sydney Downing Centre Local Court. It will then go to a hearing date, which could be set as late as September or October due to coronavirus-related delays.

If the case goes to a hearing, Scott plans to add Murugan Thangaraj, SC, to his legal team.
