Anthony Charles Debnam's trial aborted because of television news coverage

The trial of a Wagga man charged with firearms offences has been aborted because of a television news report.

Representatives for Anthony Charles Debnam argued he could not get a fair trial and an application to discharge the jury was upheld, without objection, by the Crown.

Debnam was also granted a Suitor’s Fund certificate, a payment of up to $10,000 to cover costs incurred in the aborted trial. 

The matter was listed for mention in Wagga District Court on August 11.
