THE man who at­tacked Swan Mayor David Lu­cas es­caped a fine and jail time at sen­tenc­ing in Mid­land Mag­is­trates Court last Thurs­day.

Mag­is­trate Stephen Shar­ratt is­sued War­ren Jeater with a 12-month in­ten­sive su­per­vi­sion or­der for the June 18 at­tack, which left the mayor with a cut above the eye.

Jeater (67) pleaded guilty last month to strik­ing Cr Lu­cas with a mi­cro­phone at the end of a City of Swan spe­cial elec­tors meet­ing at Mid­land Town Hall.

He pleaded guilty to break­ing Cr Lu­cas’ glasses.

Mr Shar­ratt or­dered he pay for the dam­age.

The su­per­vi­sion or­der will in­volve Jeater con­tact­ing a cor­rec­tions of­fi­cer.
