Ned Saffin, the son of Page MP Janelle Saffin, has been given a chance at rehabilitation before being sentenced for his role in an armed robbery.
Mr Saffin and another man drove two armed men to Lismore Bowling Club in July last year, where they proceeded to threaten staff with a rifle before emerging with $5000. He has pleaded guilty to being an accessory.
The three other men involved in the robbery have all since been sentenced. The two convicted of armed robbery received seven years in prison and the fourth man, who pleaded guilty to being an accessory, was given a two-year suspended sentence.
Mr Saffin, who has already spent almost seven months on remand, will be released into the custody of his parents and be assessed for rehabilitation.
