Hello, my name is Gavin. I live in downtown Sydney. When I was a kid, I was always in trouble. It started with little things like shoplifting on days when I had skipped school and progressed to more serious crimes. I was caught breaking into someone's home when I was 17 and sent to a young offenders centre. Since I got out of there, I have been going straight. Unfortunately, your reputation can follow you around. When the local police picked me up for a crime I didn't commit, I thought I was going back to jail. Thankfully, I had a great criminal attorney who was able to prove to the jury that I wasn't even in the city on the day of the crime took place. I learnt a lot about criminal law during the trial so I decided to start a blog to help others.
