Burt death-threat man has sentence postponed


A homeless man who messaged death threats to David Burt and his family has had his sentencing postponed at the Supreme Court.

Jared Gordon, 30, has pleaded guilty to sending the threats to the Premier in e-mails in 2017 and 2018.

The messages included threats to “put a bullet” in the Premier’s head.

Gordon appeared at yesterday’s arraignments session, where his sentencing was held off for the completion of a neuropsychological report.

Gordon was given a mention date of August 22.
