A Lavington man who will remain locked-up in a Victorian prison until October next year will be sentenced later this month on two unrelated sets of NSW charges, including fraud.
Joseph Alexander Peter Walker has appeared in Albury Local Court via a video link to prison, though the matters for which he is jailed were not revealed.

The 26-year-old had $4329.25 refunded by Medicare from a claim amount of $5900.
For that he pleaded guilty to obtaining a financial advantage by deception.
But Walker also pleaded guilty over an incident where he willingly went for a ride in a stolen car on a short journey at Rand.
He was charged with being carried in a conveyance taken without consent of owner and deal with property suspected to be the proceeds of crime.
The court was told how a man parked his station wagon next to his house on a rural property on Northcote Road, Rand, on December 16 about 6pm.
By 3am the next day, the car had been stolen.
Police said the car was driven to a nearby farm on Elliots Road
The property owner was woken by a noise, saw headlights, went outside and after entering the garage was punched in the mouth by Walker's co-accused.
The pair knew each other.
After the two men - with a woman in the back seat - drove off, the man found two child car seats, a pram and an engine cover that had been in the station wagon left dumped on the ground.
Walker will be sentenced, via a video link, on September 24.
