Jail time for DV

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

“WE HAVE agreed this is the last time and he knows I will leave per­ma­nently if this be­hav­iour con­tin­ues,” are the words of the part­ner of a man who con­tra­vened a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence pro­tec­tion or­der.

A 39-year-old Strathdickie man ap­peared by video link to plead guilty in Proserpine court on Mon­day.

The man had an ar­gu­ment with his part­ner when he be­came “ag­gres­sive and threat­en­ing”, tried to kicked in doors and threw a bot­tle of wine and broom at her while their son was present.

“He wants us, and he said he will un­dergo coun­selling and for him to say that is a big thing,” his part­ner said when asked her opin­ion on vary­ing the or­der.

The man, who com­mit­ted the of­fence while on pa­role, was sen­tenced to two months’ im­pris­on­ment which was sus­pended for 18 months.
