Tim Hutchins, 54, of Gladstone Street, Warrnambool pleaded guilty in Warrnambool Magistrates Court last week to making a threat to kill, harassing a witness and two counts of both stalking and breaching intervention orders. He was jailed for one month but the term has been suspended for 12 months.

Magistrate Ian von Einem had remanded Hutchins in custody overnight Thursday after he felt that Hutchins was not getting the message about the seriousness of his offending.

Police alleged that Hutchins was in a relationship with a married woman which ended when he began stalking her and her husband found out about the affair. The woman took out an intervention order which Hutchins breached during the first two weeks of February this year by tailgating the woman’s car, abusing her husband, threatening her husband and threatening to kill the woman.

The woman’s daughters and husband were now under professional medical care due to the stress caused by Hutchins’ behaviour.

Defence counsel Andrew Tweedly last week said his client had been in a relationship with the woman even though there had been a denial of the relationship.

He said Hutchins now wanted to move to South Australia. Mr von Einem told Hutchins that if he continued his behaviour then he would spend time in jail.

He said it didn’t matter who was right or wrong, if Hutchins continued his behaviour then he would be imprisoned. Hutchins told the court he would not reoffend.
