I was in our local Magistrates Court. Young girl maybe 18 or 19, severely pregnant, with broken arm, clear bruising in her neck and a black eye. Her partner charged with assault, breaching AVO and resisting arrest. Evidence was horrendous, witness testimony scary and police description frightening.
Found guilty on all charges, previous offences mentioned including assault and AVO on same victim.
But he was mistreated as a child and psychologist report was that he was also a victim.
Magistrate gave him 12 months suspended sentence and a 12 month community service order,
Three month later she was hospitalised and lost the baby. No further charges laid.
