Slap causes a DV or­der breach

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS - –ANNIE PERETS

AWOMAN went for a ca­sual drive in Au­gust last year with her young son, when she saw the boy’s fa­ther and her emo­tions took over.

“I got up­set and slapped him when I shouldn’t have. I didn’t think,” she said.

The woman, aged in her 20s, pleaded guilty to breach­ing a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence or­der when she ap­peared in Monto Mag­is­trates Court on June 29.

How­ever, she also has a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence or­der on the ag­grieved and Mag­is­trate Me­lanie Ho took that into con­sid­er­a­tion.

“You should stay away from each other.”

Mag­is­trate Ho put the woman on a good-be­hav­iour bond.
