Two men have been charged with weapons offences after a motor vehicle crash on the Princes Highway at Bimbimbie on Sunday, October 20.
Bailie Robert Doran, 20, of Bingie Rd, Bingie, appeared in Batemans Bay Local Court via video link on Monday.
He pleaded guilty to two counts of possessing a shortened firearm (not pistol) without authority, possessing ammunition without holding a licence/permit/authority, possessing or using a prohibited weapon without a permit (knuckle dusters), possessing a prohibited drug, possession of equipment for administering prohibited drugs (water pipe), possessing goods suspected of being stolen (not m/v) (two prescription pads), custody of knife in a public place (subsequent offence) and restricted substance sold by non-wholesaler (Diazepam - Valium).
Co-accused Jeremiah Carriage, 18, of Veitch St, Mogo, did not enter pleas.
He is charged with two counts of possessing a shortened firearm (not pistol) without authority, possessing an unauthorised firearm, possessing ammunition without holding a licence/permit/authority, custody of a knife in a public place (subsequent offence) and possessing a prohibited drug.
Ian Francis Hall, 32, of Majorie Crescent, Batehaven, was charged with driving recklessly/furiously or dangerously, negligent driving (no death or grievous bodily harm) and possessing/attempting to possess a prescribed restricted substance.
He appeared in Batemans Bay Local Court on Monday, but did not enter pleas.
Magistrate Doug Dick refused Hall's bail application.
Prosecutor Mark Chaplin said Mr Hall returned a breath test of 0.03 at the time of driving, and had breached previous bail conditions to abstain from alcohol.
He said Mr Hall had previously failed to attend court and to comply with a bond.
Defence lawyer Geoff Knox said Mr Hall's sole involvement in the incident was minor.
Mr Knox said Hall "was bribed with prescription drugs" to drive.
He said his alcohol level was "very low" and "doesn't involve an offence"; "he merely had a couple of drinks".
He said Hall's bail breaches were at the "lower end of the scale" and Hall's retired mother could supervise him.
Magistrate Doug Dick said the alleged offence occurred four days after being granted bail on other matters and refused bail.
The trio is due to face court on November 11.
