Good Morning.

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question. Please understand this is not legal advise but a guide to assist you.

No this cannot be stopped it is now in the hands of the police. The Police are relying on the evidence from the neighbour identifying her as the person that damaged the car.

She has to plead guilty with an explanation and also show remorse the court can deal with it by showing leniency and not convicting her but she will need a solicitor to represent her.

I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. if there is nothing further

Thanks Leon. I misplaced the request into the Australian Law sector and reposted into UK so thanks for your response but need to place this into UK law.
