Serial bail violator released on bail – for the ninth time

A serial bail violator has been released on bail again.

Caleb Jakobbsen, the teenager charged over the death of Andrea Lehane, who was hit by a monkey bike at Carrum Downs last year, has breached his curfew eight times.

He also ran from police when they tried to speak to him at a bus stop.

Police asked the court to revoke his bail, but the court refused.

Instead, the court’s given him another chance on bail.

Victims of Crime Commissioner Greg Davies told Neil Mitchell Mr Jakobbsen is now showing no regard for the legal system.

‘He hasn’t complied with bail conditions on eight separate occasions – so this is now his ninth chance,’ Mr Davies said.
