Paul Trevor Sant, 38, pleaded guilty to the charge at Cowra Local Court, deriving from a matter on March 2 this year when he punched a person multiple times.
The victim was transported to Cowra Hospital for treatment to their eye and shoulder, police facts say.
At court, Magistrate Michael O’Brien asked Sant if he had anything to say about the matter to which he replied: “No.”
Facts reveal Sant was heard yelling outside the Billimari home about 8pm, saying he needed to speak to one of the residents in an attempt to settle monetary issues.
He was told to leave the property.
The statement says Sant approached the premises, punched the victim a number of times to the face and continued to punch the victim on the ground.
Police attended Sant’s residence about 10.30pm, and he made admissions to the assault.
“If someone does you injustice, there’s right ways to deal with it,” Magistrate Michael O’Brien said.
“It’s completely unnecessary.”
Orange fruit distributor Mitchell James Kennedy has been convicted at Cowra Local Court and fined $500 after pleading guilty to a string of driving matters.
The 27-year-old was charged with negligent driving, not displaying P plates and not having an approved interlock device on March 3 when he crashed on Casuarina Drive near Eugowra.
Facts reveal Kennedy failed to negotiate a bend, over corrected and ended up rolling the vehicle through a nearby fence and into a paddock.
Police inspected the scene and found the vehicle without an interlock device installed and no P plates either on the vehicle or near the crash site.
Police spoke to Kennedy and discovered his licence is subject to conditions including display P plates and fit an alcohol interlock device.
The court heard the fruit distributor was not aware Kennedy needed the device installed.
“You’re fortunate to be here at all reading the facts,” Magistrate Michael O’Brien said.
Kennedy was convicted of each charge and fined a total of $500.
