It helps to know when to walk away.
On 13 February 2018 a man in western Victoria, Australia, asked a family member to buy paint for him. When they declined, he became angry and smashed windows in the family home and car. He was charged with breaching §197(1) of the Crimes Act 1958 (Vic.):
A person who intentionally and without lawful excuse destroys or damages any property belonging to another or to himself and another shall be guilty of an indictable offence and liable to level 5 imprisonment (10 years maximum).
On 14 February 2018 the Hamilton Magistrates Court issued an intervention order directing him not to recontact a particular family member or to enter the family home. Despite this, later in February he entered the home and became aggressive towards the family member. The charge of breaching an intervention order was added to the prosecution.
The offender was presented for trial in Portland Magistrates Court and pleaded guilty. He was fined $1,000.00 by Toose M.
