Isaac Paparoa pleaded guilty to a charge of theft of a mobile phone and was sentenced to eight years and three months’ imprisonment. He had been involved in the planning of the robbery and, in its immediate aftermath, he drove his two co-offenders away in a second stage get-away car (that is to say his co-offenders drove from the place the robbery occurred to the applicant, who was ready in a second car). The target of the robbery was a security van carrying cash. The co-offenders timed their robbery to the moment when the security guards were separated and the cash was most accessible. In the course of the robbery the disguised principal offender presented a firearm at a security guard and, following a struggle, made off with $3,300.
