Jail and probation for man who punched his wife
A Warwick man was given ten days in jail for assaulting his wife.
Stuart Lottimore, 46, admitted holding a knife against Yvonne Grey-Lottimore's throat and telling her: “I hate you so much I could cut you.”
Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner sentenced the Tamarind Vale resident to ten days in jail for unlawful assault and using offensive words and threatening gestures against his wife on May 13.
Lottimore had been in custody since July 25, when he appeared in court to face charges from a separate incident on July 9, where he punched his wife in the face, shattering her $500 glasses.
Lottimore received no separate penalty for the July 9 incident.
He told Mr Warner in Magistrates' Court today: “I learned my lesson up Westgate. That ain't going to happen no more.”
Mr Warner sentenced him to time already served in jail plus two years' probation, part of which demands that he refrain from alcohol and drugs.
He was also ordered to undergo anger management treatment.
