Be­hav­iour ‘creepy’

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A JU­BILEE Pocket man’s “creepy” be­hav­iour was con­demned in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court.

While walk­ing along Hin­schen St, two girls in their late-teens no­ticed Ja­son Scott Richter, 32, fol­low­ing them on May 22 at 4.30pm.

As they turned down An­zac Rd, Richter wolf-whis­tled and stared at them from the rail lines.

One girl called her mother and both ran to­ward Jupp St where they ar­ranged to be res­cued. Richter fol­lowed them.

Richter ran in the op­po­site di­rec­tion af­ter the mother called po­lice and was seen jump­ing over the back fence of a busi­ness yard.

Richter was searched by po­lice on Ruge St on May 30 at 4.45pm and was found with a glass pipe.

On June 24 at 12.30am he was stopped driv­ing on Shute Har­bour Rd in Proser­pine and was found with an­other glass pipe in­side a bag.

Chief Mag­is­trate Orazio Rin­audo told Richter his be­hav­iour to­ward the girls was “com­pletely wrong” and a very se­ri­ous of­fence.

Richter was sen­tenced to three months im­pris­on­ment, wholly sus­pended for 12 months, for public nui­sance, and two months, wholly sus­pended for 12 months, for both drug uten­sil charges.
