Damien Aubrey Perfrement, 42, appeared at Cowra Local Court in custody on Wednesday, May 17, facing two charges of stalk/intimidate and two charges of contravene an apprehended violence order (AVO).
The court heard Perfrement had spent two weeks in custody following the latest contravene AVO charge that occurred about 7pm on May 3.
Police was alerted to violent yelling from a home on Phillips Street, a police statement tendered at courts says.
Police attended and saw Perfrement who attempted to get outside from a rear door of the residence.
His attempt to escape was short-lived, with police arresting Perfrement who was then refused bail.
“When they get together something happens. It’s very unpleasant,” Magistrate Peter Dare said of the relationship between Perfrement and the victim.
“So much so people contact police.”
Solicitor Clive Hill said his client had “learnt a lesson” from his time in custody.
“He’s never been before. It was a shock to the system and not something he likes,” Mr Hill said.
The stalk/intimidate charges occurred on March 10, and between 9am on September 16 and 1pm on September 17.
On both occasions police received calls from the public about loud yelling coming from a Phillips Street home.
A 39-year-old Cowra woman has been disqualified from driving for two years.
Janelle Susan Fitzgerald was caught driving during a period of disqualification about 9.20am on December 16.
Fitzgerald came to police attention on Kendal Street.
Police checks revealed her licence disqualified until July 27 this year.
“It’s not a section 10 offence.
“She’s done it all to herself,” Magistrate Peter Dare said.
She was also ordered to enter a section 9 bond to be of good behaviour for a year.
