Attorney-General Orders Bus Assault Appeal

Victor P Taffa

Attorney-General and Minister for Justice Jarrod Bleijie will appeal the sentence of a 21-year-old woman who assaulted a man on a Gold Coast bus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Larna Janet Watmough was sentenced to two months’ jail, wholly suspended, and 12 months’ probation in the Southport Magistrates Court after she assaulted a 77-year-old vision impaired man while they were riding on the bus.

 

The Attorney-General’s appeal is on the grounds that the sentence is manifestly inadequate and the Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions will act on his behalf in the District Court.
