Daniel Joseph Tate, 22, of Wooles Avenue, appeared in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court last week.

He pleaded guilty to dealing with property suspected of being the proceeds of crime, reckless conduct endangering serious injury, intentionally damaging property, threatening to inflict serious injury, driving while disqualified, careless driving/improper use of a motor vehicle, breaching an intervention order, failing to answer bail, driving in a dangerous manner, two counts of both offensive behaviour and indecent language and three charges of unlawful assault.

The charges in part resulted from domestic relationship issues and Tate’s dealings with police.

Tate was convicted and sentenced to four months’ imprisonment which was suspended for 12 months. He was also fined $1500, had his driver’s licence cancelled for 12 months and will have to serve a 12-month community corrections order, which includes conditions he undertake treatment for alcohol issues, a men’s behaviour program, a road trauma awareness seminar and programs to reduce reoffending.

Tate appeared in court facing charges involving five police officers and the evidence was so extensive that Magistrate Ann McGarvie took a break from court to read all the allegations.

If Tate commits any offences punishable by jail in the next 12 months he will have to show exceptional circumstances why he should not serve an immediate four months in jail.
