Former NT political candidate jailed for fleecing ‘vulnerable’ Indigenous people


A man who ran for Northern Territory parliament has been jailed for conning Indigenous victims out of thousands of dollars in mobile phone and computer contracts, as well as fabricating evidence and selling over-priced alcohol from the boot of his car.

Jackson Anni, 30, today pleaded guilty to stealing $16,130 from people in Darwin and Katherine over the course of several months last year.

Police said the money was taken in recurring, excessive payments that Anni set up from the bank accounts of people he had previously agreed to help obtain goods such as computers, mobile phones and vehicles.
