Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

A Whit­sun­day res­i­dent was sen­tenced to 10 months im­pris­on­ment for con­tra­ven­ing a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence or­der and com­mit­ting a pub­lic nui­sance of­fence at Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day.

Clint Mark Trim­mer was sub­ject to a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence court or­der at the Proser­pine Mag­is­trates court on July 22, which stated he must main­tain good be­hav­iour, not con­tact the ag­grieved or visit their place of res­i­dence.

At 10.30am on July 25, po­lice at­tended a Ju­bilee Pocket res­i­dence af­ter re­ceiv­ing in­for­ma­tion of a dis­pute. Po­lice found Trim­mer at the res­i­dence and spoke with mul­ti­ple wit­ness to ver­ify events. Po­lice prose­cu­tor El­iz­a­beth Cas­sells said as Trim- mer reached the bot­tom of the stairs an­other res­i­dent of the unit block yelled out “stop it mate”. She said Trim­mer ran straight at the res­i­dent and punched him in the jaw with a closed fist. The man did not wish to make a com­plaint about the in­ci­dent.

Trim­mer was ar­rested by po­lice and re­manded in cus­tody.

Mag­is­trate Haydn St­jern­qvist said “there was no ex­cep­tion for at­tend­ing the res­i­dence”, stat­ing Trim­mer needed “in­ten­sive coun­selling”.

The 29-year-old was sen­tenced to four months im­pris­on­ment for com­mit­ting a pub­lic nui­sance of­fence and a fur­ther six months for con­tra­ven­ing the do­mes­tic vi­o­lence or­der.
