A barman accidentally hands over glass after midnight, see's the mistake immediately rectifies it, but no the police prosecute and the clubs manager who is at home sleeping at the time gets a criminal conviction we are north korea or nsw, common sense is dead in this state full story: A WESTERN Sydney club operator was convicted as a criminal after an undercover police officer was served a glass bottle of champagne after midnight. In the first full prosecution under the State Government's tough new drinking laws, Campbelltown Catholic Club CEO Michael Lavorato was fined and convicted after a staff member served champagne in a plastic glass but accidentally handed over the glass bottle as well. The club has been subject of a police sting operation since the State Government's new drinking laws began in December. Less than three weeks after the laws took effect, undercover officers pretended to be customers at the venue and ordered two champagnes after midnight. The sparkling wines were poured into plastic glasses but the bartender inadvertently handed the small glass bottles, too. Even though a manager saw the mistake and went over to remove the bottles, police decided to prosecute for breaching the ban on glass sales after midnight at certain venues. Another staff member also accidentally served a Heinekin beer in a bottle after midnight and the club was penalised for that too. The staffer was so distressed that she resigned over the incident. There was one glassing at the club, 11 years ago. Magistrate Daryl Pearce fined the club $600 for each of the three breaches and recorded a conviction against Lavorato who was in bed at the time of the incident. Mr Pearce said it was necessary to send a message to the industry and deter others. However the conviction has outraged the industry, which is demanding an overhaul of the legislation. There were claims of absurd overkill by police on the laws. On two another occasions undercover officers supposedly detected intoxicated patrons but Mr Pearce dismissed both charges. In the first case the man was simply "smiling a lot" and in the second the magistrate found that the club could not have reasonably stopped the man, who was at a dance concert, from being drunk. Lavorato later told The Daily Telegraph that over a four-hour period two Fridays ago no fewer than 27 police officers, as well as sniffer dogs, went through the club.
