Richard Knight, 21, admitted wilful damage after he wrecked The Survey- ing Company s front door about 11pm on Tuesday, July 12. Prosecuting Sergeant Ian McDonald said Knight had kicked the door and smashed it. In explanation he said he had been drinking and was showing off. Duty lawyer Carla Leader said he had apologised to the business and was furious at himself for doing the crime. He is trying to turn his life around. He had alcohol, when he should not have. He s done a course to address core issues. Judge T J Broadmore said he did not blame Knight for being annoyed at himself. You re the only one that can turn yourself around so it s you that has to do the work. Knight was ordered to come up if called upon within six months and ordered to pay $789 in reparations for the damage. UPPER HUTT COURT Cannabis pain relief still crime A 21-year-old man, labelled a menace by a judge, recently appeared in court on drug- related charges. In March, Nikolai Arthur Francis Gorinski was given six months community detention instead of paying $33,646 worth of traffic fines. A district court judge said he had no respect for the law and was a menace. Last week Gorinski pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis and represented himself, instead of using a lawyer. Prosecuting Sergeant Ian McDonald said a search warrant was executed at Gorinski s house in relation to a separate matter. They found a plastic bag with cannabis in a drawer and another in his pocket. Gorinski admitted it was his, Mr McDonald said. He said he purchased a $100 bag every two months. Gorinski told the court he used marijuana for coping with pain caused by a high-impact car crash . He spent time in hospital after a driver, James Cubit, lost con- trol of his speeding car in 2009 and fishtailed into Gorinski s vehicle. Two teenage passengers from Cubit s car died in the crash. I ve had heaps of operations, heaps of medical stuff done to my body and I just use it to relax sometimes, Gorinski said. Judge T J Broadmore said he was only slightly sympathetic to offenders who used cannabis for pain relief. I think you need to make a serious effort to see whether there are some alternatives to control the pain. There s an increasing amount of legal drugs that you can get for free. Gorinski said he would look at alternative medicines. He was convicted and fined $100. Drink-driving mistake' A Hutt City Council employee has appeared in court for his third or subsequent drink- driving charge. Environment officer Daniel Hall pleaded guilty last week to excess breath alcohol. Hall failed a breath test after he was stopped by police for broken tail-lights, defence coun- sel Phyllis Strachan said. He had four Steinlagers over five hours. He s admitting the fact that he s made a mistake. Ms Strachan said Hall s last charge was nine years ago and he had changed his lifestyle. He s utterly changed the path he was on since the 90s. From the age of 15 to 25 he rebelled. He has put behind him what was rather a reckless life. Judge T J Broadmore said Hall deserved credit for turning his life around. You have been out of trouble for so long and lead a positive life. I noticed that you thought you were OK to drive. Hall was disqualified from driving for 15 months and ordered to complete 200 hours community work. Car puts signature on pole Police caught an Upper Hutt man who lost control of his car, because he left an imprint of his number plate on a wooden power pole. Last week Bryce William Masterton admitted careless driving and driving while dis- qualified. Prosecuting Sergeant Ian McDonald said Masterton crashed his friend s Honda at the roundabout on Queen and Logan sts at 10pm on December 23. Masterton drove away from the scene but was found by police because his licence plate left an imprint on a wooden power pole. He told police he was driving too fast and trying to get to KFC, Mr McDonald said. Defence counsel Julia Sanders said it was a long shot that Masterton was caught. He admitted immediately that it was his fault. Judge T J Broadmore said he gave Masterton credit for admit- ting the crime and would not make him pay the total $3000 in reparations for the broken pole. He was convicted and disquali- fied from driving for 12 months and ordered to pay $2000.
