Jarred Chris Rumbold pleaded guilty in court to one charge of domestic assault. Defence lawyer Fionnuala Kelly said her client pleaded guilty but disputed the facts. The statement of facts say he picked the victim up, carried her and threw her on the ground, she said. The defendant said he did not throw her on the ground, but placed her on the ground. In a fit of anger he grabbed her and tipped her, she said. Judge Denys Barry said that on April 26 the defendant committed an assault on his mother and requested a dis- charge without conviction. You re lucky you weren t charged with male assaults female, he said. She now feels guilty she has reported it, he said. She did the right thing. Rumbold was ordered to com- plete 40 hours voluntary work. He was also ordered to attend a stopping violence programme and if completed would be dis- charged without conviction. Fine for road rage episode UPPER HUTT DISTRICT COURT An unemployed man charged with intimidation chased a victim down after the cars they were in collided, the Upper Hutt Court sitting in Lower Hutt heard last week. Blair James Gilligan, 22, pleaded guilty to two breaches of community work, intimidation and disorderly behaviour. Defence lawyer Ken Ah Kuoi said Gilligan had the support of his mother and family in court. The defendant could not attend community work, and had a medical certificate. He suffers from dermatitis, he said. Letters from his girlfriend and mother were given to the judge. Now he s going to attend a for- estry course, he will get a certifi- cate, he said. He wants a job so he can support his son. Judge Mary O Dwyer said pro- bation had indicated the defendant s drinking problem needed inter- vention. They had also indicated the defendant skipped community work with some days having a medical certificate, and other times without. Driving charges related to an inci- dent on State Highway 2. The vehicle the defendant was in had overtaken another vehicle before coming to an abrupt halt. The vehicle behind had run into the back of the vehicle the defendant was in. You approached the vehicle and reached in and opened the door, she said. The victim felt threatened when the defendant chased her, she said. Looking at your history, I m not surprised to read that you have a problem with alcohol and drugs. You blame others rather than accepting it yourself, she said. The defendant had a supportive family and letters from them in his defence, she said. He had also pleaded guilty and had medical needs, she said. Gilligan was sentenced to 12 months intensive supervision, three months community detention and ordered to pay $300 reparation over the car incident. 22-y-o drinking in last chance saloon An unemployed man who lost his job because of his drinking was given his last chance before prison in the Upper Hutt District Court last week. Troy Corey Bates, 22, pleaded guilty in court to two charges of breach of conditions. Defence lawyer Carla Leader said he had accepted he would have to do a programme and was supported in court by his father. He had been employed previously but eventually lost the job. He did have a job but he lost it because of his drinking. Judge Mary O Dwyer said the defendant had a history of non- compliance. This will be your last chance to have a community-based sentence. The defendant was sentenced to four months home detention. He was ordered not to consume alcohol during this period and to complete an alcohol and drug assess- ment. Dad wants to see kids A man who appeared on charges of assault on a female, multiple theft charges and a drug charge asked for bail conditions to be revoked so he could see his children. Johnothan Joshua Antipas, 22, pleaded not guilty in the Upper Hutt District Court last week to charges of assault on a female, theft, and taking pecuniary advantage. He did not enter a plea on a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. Defence lawyer Sarah Le Page challenged bail conditions imposed which were that he would not con- tact his children. They weren t involved in the offending. Prosecuting Sergeant Neill Ford said police did not oppose changing bail conditions. Judge Mary O Dwyer remanded the defendant on bail to July 30 for a status hearing. Disqualified driver caught driving to buy groceries A suspended driver aged 59 earned an additional six months disqualifi- cation after he drove to buy cigar- ettes, the court heard last week. William Elliot Currie pleaded guilty in the Upper Hutt District Court to one charge of driving with a suspended licence. Defence lawyer Ian Hard said Currie was driving to buy groceries for his partner, and it was an unfor- tunate decision. Judge Mary O Dwyer said it was most unfortunate at Currie s age to be caught driving while suspended and he would receive the minimum fine and disqualification. Currie was fined $250 plus court costs and was disqualified from driv- ing for six months.
