Attorney Michael Gerard Sullivan, 54, leaded guilty to stealing two paintings from the Katoomba Fine Art Gallery in December 2008.

The court heard the testimony of two psychiatric reports which concluded Sullivan had dissociative amnesia which caused him to take on the identity of an art thief. He claims to have no memory of the event.

Judge Jennifer English accepted the diagnosis.
