A Sydney man was sent back to jail Wednesday as part of his sentence on fraud charges.
Chad Francis Delaney, 35, of George Street, pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud and a single count of possession of stolen property.
The offences occurred last year in Sydney when Delaney and a female co-accused purchased some $600 in goods and services using a stolen credit card.
After spending eight months on remand, Delaney was ordered to serve an additional 123 days followed a one-year probation period.
He was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $579 to the credit card owner.
Among the conditions of his probation, Delaney is to stay away from four retail outlets and make all efforts to get a job in order to pay the restitution.
An arrest warrant was previously issued for the female co-accused who failed to attend court last month.
