Warrnambool's Samantha Kolosche to serve a minimum 15 months in prison before parole

AN ice us​ing mum-of-three with 30 pages of prior convictions ​has been jailed for  21 months after admitting to more than 30 new charges.

Samantha Kolosche, 30, of  Crossley, ​also ​​Warrnambool and Glenormiston, ​pleaded guilty ​last week ​in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court to 33 charges.

 Magistrate Cynthia Toose said the case involved a ​large number of serious charges including reckless conduct endangering serious injury​, evading police​ and driving while disqualified​.

Some of the charges related to ​overtaking a vehicle at 170km/h while travelling up a hill and unable to see oncoming traffic during a police pursuit. 

She was driving while disqualified at the time.

Kolosche was jailed for 21 months and has to be serve a minimum 15 months before being eligible for parole.

She was also convicted and fined $3100 and banned from driving for three years.

Kolosche was also resentenced for breaching  ​two​ corrections order​s​ on charges including arson and that jail term will run concurrent with the other sentence.

Ms Toose said that Kolosche had previously been placed on seven or eight corrections orders and suspended jail sentences which she had breached.

Her extensive prior convictions include driving while disqualified, dangerous driving and dangerous driving while pursued by police.

The magistrate said that at 30 years of age it may be too late to rehabilitate  Kolosche and only a custodial sentence was appropriate for such repetitive offending.

K​olosche has been in and out of jail since 2006 and has already served 1​72 days on th​e​ curr​ent charges.
