    Date: 2018.09.22 | Category: 南京夜网 | Response: 0

    When Rebecca Fynn was confronted about stealing alcohol from the store she threatened she would break the glass bottles and said she would take “your tills and all your money”.

    Fynn, 32, pleaded guilty to a charge of intimidation with intent to cause fear of physical or mental harm on the day the matter was to go to hearing.

    She faced Dubbo Local Court to be sentenced for a total of seven fresh offences as well as seven breaches of bonds imposed for previous offences of larceny and violence towards police.

    Magistrate Andrew Eckhold sentenced her to a maximum period of 18 months behind bars for the intimidation offence, which attracted the most severe penalty of the seven fresh offences.

    He set a non-parole period of six months, finding special circumstances of totality and drug dependency.

    The offence occurred on the night of May 2 at Dan Murphy’s, when Fynn and another woman were approached by store staff who questioned them about bottles of alcohol in a bag.

    The court heard that when Fynn was asked to leave she told the store assistant she would stab her with a “dirty needle”, and smash a bottle and “stick it in your face”.

    The accused was pacing back and forward and motioning towards the bottles on the shelf, court documents show.

    “I don’t have to leave,” Fynn said.

    “You don’t tell me what to do.

    “I’ll take your whole shop.

    “I’ll take your tills and all your money.”

    The defence submitted that all the offences were connected to substance abuse.

    The magistrate said Fynn had an “out-of-control drug dependency” and that she was showing real signs of violence.

    “Ms Fynn has a lot of work to do,” Mr Eckhold said.

    “The difficulty is if someone tries to stop her when she is on a binge, she’s starting to become violent.”

    Fynn will be eligible for release to supervised parole in March.

    Mr Eckhold said he made a note that drug rehabilitation programs were to be made available to Fynn in custody.

    Fynn was also sentenced to jail for a string of shoplifting and larceny offences, with property stolen from Sportspower, Dan Murphy’s, Best and Less, The Good Guys and Priceline Pharmacy.

    Mitch Rogerson and Jason Eagle.

    The Mildura midfielder, who polled 21 votes during the season, said joint winner Jason Eagle’s goalkicking feats for Irymple would hold the big forward in good stead.

    “I don’t know if I’m a chance (at the McLeod Medal),” Rogerson said.

    “Jason has been kicking bags every week.”

    Rogerson had a bright start to the year, polling in the club’s best players for the first eight games before injuries halted his run.

    “My form’s been all right,” he said.

    “My start of the year was probably better than the last bit but I think I was consistent all round.”

    Rogerson performed well in the ­second half of the year, still being named

    in his side’s best players in all but three games.

    Eagle’s chances need no talking up.

    The full forward kicked 117 goals for the season at an average of six per game.

    There were only three games Eagle did not poll in his side’s best.
