Jeal­ousy sparks DV out­burst

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

WHEN jeal­ousy clouded her think­ing, a Can­non­vale woman be­came vi­o­lent, break­ing the do­mes­tic vi­o­lence pro­tec­tion or­der made against her in De­cem­ber last year.

On Mon­day, the court heard how on May 17 at 9am, Whit­sun­day po­lice were called to at­tend a Can­non­vale ad­dress af­ter a re­ceiv­ing a call from a man say­ing, “I need help, my part­ner is go­ing off.”

The man told po­lice how at work that day he asked his part­ner if he could bor­row an ex­ten­sion lead be­fore she said “you can’t work for her any more” and left for home.

The man fol­lowed her home to speak about what she had said. They had a short con­ver­sa­tion about him work­ing with other women. The man told po­lice his part­ner was jeal­ous of him work­ing with women.

The woman be­came ag­i­tated, ran to­wards her part­ner and kicked him in the right shin be­fore he tried to leave. The woman then grabbed his col­lar with such force it left a tear and ripped off a but­ton. It was al­leged she then slapped him on the chest about three times.

The woman was sen­tenced to one month im­pris­on­ment wholly sus­pended for six months.
