Prisoner awaits outcome
CHARGES against a Jubilee Pocket man accused of break and enter, assault occasioning bodily harm and going armed to cause fear may not now be heard in a higher court.
Stephen Neil Crisp appeared in the Proserpine Magistrate’s Court on Monday via a video link with the Capricornia Correctional Centre where he has been since he allegedly attacked the door of a Mandalay home with a butcher’s knife and Samurai sword in early January.
Crisp is also charged with common assault relating to a separate incident in November 2014.
On Monday the charges relating to the incident in Mandalay were listed for a handup to the district court, but police prosecutor Elizabeth Smith said this might no longer need to occur.
Ms Smith told the court she had received correspondence relating to Crisp’s matters from Lachlan Ygoa McKeown of Morton Lawyers and she was now considering this.
“[And] it may be the case it doesn’t need to take the course of a hand-up,” she said.
All of Crisp’s matters were adjourned to March 30 when he will again appear via a video link.
