This is not within community standards surely? Who cares if he misses his girl blah blah? He killed and expectant mother because he did not give a fuck! Why should we about him. Back to jail son and think about your crimes.

A teenager charged over the death of a Melbourne mother in a mini-motorcycle crash will remain on bail despite committing eight breaches, with a magistrate citing evidence that he is a “changed individual”.
Caleb Jakobsson is accused of running over Andrea Lehane outside a Carrum Downs shopping centre in September last year.
The Melbourne Magistrates Court was told the 19-year-old had breached the conditions of his bail at least eight times since being released from protective custody in prison in October.
The breaches included failing to adhere to a curfew and another incident which was suppressed by the court.
Magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg said he expected someone on bail while facing the serious charge of culpable driving causing death “would toe the line to perfection”.
“It is not so with you,” he said.
Magistrate Rozencwajg said Jakobsson had acted in a way that was disrespectful to Ms Lehane’s loved ones, but that bail was about risk.
Jakobsson breached bail because ‘he’s in love’
The 19-year-old has been staying with a relative in country Victoria.
A hearing last week was told Jakobsson had broken his curfew imposed by court after falling in love with a single mother.
The relative Jakobsson is living with gave evidence after reporting him to police over eight breaches, telling the court he had been out with his girlfriend and new friends.
“He’s in love, I know it’s not an excuse. Often I knew he was local and wouldn’t pose a threat,” she said.
“I thank God I went to the police because he’s had a real change of heart.”
The woman had to re-pledge she would immediately report any further breaches of bail.
Magistrate Rozencwajg said the family member had told the court “since the last hearing, [Jakobsson] has been a changed individual”.
He granted Jakobsson bail with more stringent conditions until his next court hearing in June.

A teenager facing charges over the death of a mother of two who was fatally injured in a mini-motorbike crash in a Melbourne shopping centre has been granted bailed.
It is alleged Caleb Jakobsson was driving a mini-motorbike in the car park of the Carrum Downs complex when he struck Andrea Lehane.
Justice Phillip Priest imposed 14 conditions in granting bail.
He will be subject to a 10:00pm to 9:00am curfew, he has to report to police three times a week, and he cannot leave the state or the country.
He has also been banned from contacting the other teenagers charged in this case, including by social media, as well as being ordered to live with his relative, who cannot be identified because of a suppression order.
“It was a very close run thing that you got bail,” Justice Priest told the teenager.
The 18-year-old is due back in court in January.

An 18-year-old man charged over a mini-motorbike hit-and-run that killed a mother of two at Carrum Downs, in Melbourne’s south-east, has been refused bail in court.
Caleb Jakobsson, 18, faced the Melbourne Magistrates Court for a second day in a row, charged with culpable driving over the death of Andrea Lehane, 34, who was hit by a mini-motorcycle at a pedestrian crossing at a Carrum Downs shopping centre last Wednesday.
She died in hospital on Friday after suffering what her husband described as “unsurvivable” injuries.
Jakobsson was charged with culpable driving, failing to stop and render assistance, unlicensed driving and driving an unregistered vehicle.
A relative, who cannot be named for legal reasons, told the court that if Jakobsson were to be released on bail, he could live with her on a property in rural Victoria.
She told the court there would be plenty of opportunity for Jakobsson to be involved in volunteering, and he would have lots of support.
“We all want to help Caleb,” she said.

“We’re a tight family, everybody will get involved.”
But the prosecution argued Jakobsson posed an unacceptable risk of reoffending.
Magistrate Frank Holzer agreed, adding Jakobsson could face a lengthy prison sentence if found guilty of culpable driving.
Jakobsson will return to court next year.
Yesterday in court, police described the “chaotic” scenes at the pedestrian crossing in the aftermath of the crash, which was caught on CCTV.
Detective Senior Constable Leigh Miller said he thought Jakobsson was driving at 30 kilometres per hour in a 10kph zone.

A teenager charged with killing a mother-of-two with his mini-motorbike has been granted bail despite repeatedly breaching a court-imposed curfew and ‘acting disrespectfully’ toward his victim’s family.
Melbourne Magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg once again granted Caleb Jakobsson, 19, bail at a hearing on Monday after prosecutors asked for it be revoked because of the curfew breaches.
The ruling came even though the magistrate said Jakobsson had ‘an attitude that can only be described as insolent’.
‘Not only have you breached your bail conditions but you do so in a way that is disrespectful to the family and loved ones of the deceased,’ Rozencwajg told the teenager.

Jakobsson was first granted bail last year after being charged with culpable driving causing the death of nurse Andrea Lehane, 34, in September.
The teen is accused of striking Ms Lehane with his mini ‘monkey’ motorbike as she walked across a pedestrian crossing at a shopping centre in Carrum Downs – It’s alleged the teen then sped away.
The mother-of-two died on September 25 when her family turned off her life support after being told she wouldn’t survive her brain injuries.
When Jakobsson was granted bail, his conditions included a curfew between 10pm and 9am.
Prosecutors applied in April to have his bail revoked after it was revealed the teen had breached his curfew multiple times – and that the relative he is staying with had not immediately reported it to police.
Mr Jakobsson fronted the Melbourne Magistrates Court last month after the relative he was staying with, who cannot be identified, reported him to police for breaching his curfew.

At the April hearing, Magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg added more conditions to Jakobsson’s bail, including he attend court for regular reviews.
The teen’s relative said she had failed to report Jakobsson’s breaches, despite giving an undertaking to the Supreme Court that she would, because she was trying to show mercy.
She said: ‘I didn’t think he was a threat. In every one of those instances he was somewhere local.’
Jakobsson is scheduled to attend a review in June before facing a committal hearing in July.
