    Your old TIC case is unlikely to be invoked; TIC cases are outstanding offences (i.e. that were not proceeded with against you) that were taken into consideration for sentencing purposes regarding your principal charge seven years ago. It may potentially be admissible under the Evidence Act as evidence of bad character (if you try to adduce good character evidence) but the fact that your present offence is unrelated to your past case diminishes the latter’s relevance, if any.
