Assaulting and stalking a Lismore hotel director and one of his employees in June has resulted in a man being jailed for 12 months.
Marcus Glynn Davis appeared via videolink in Lismore Local Court on Monday and was represented by solicitor Ms Millard.
The 46-year-old was charged with two counts of common assault, two counts of stalking and intimidation, intentionally destroying or damaging property, resisting arrest and failing to leave a licensed premises.
Mr Davis pleaded guilty to all charges which stemmed from an incident at the New Tattersalls Hotel on Keen Street, Lismore.
According to police, on June 15, at 4.54 pm, Mr Davis assaulted both the director of the hotel and a male employee.
During the incident, Mr Davis also damaged several tables and chairs of the hotel, the court heard.
Police were called and when they arrived Mr Davis resisted a male constable who tried to arrest him.
He was taken to Lismore police station and charged with seven offences and refused bail.
When he appeared in Lismore Local Court on June 16, Magistrate David Heilpern convicted Mr Davis of failing to leave a licensed premises when requested and he was granted a section 10a, meaning the conviction wasn’t recorded.
On Monday, Mr Davis appeared for sentence on the remaining charges at Lismore Local Court before Magistrate R Denes.
Ms Denes imposed an aggregate sentence of 12 months on all charges except the offence of failing to leave a licensed premises when requested.
She ordered Mr Davis to serve a non-parole period of six months.
Given time already spent in custody, Mr Davis will be eligible for release on December 15.
Upon his release, Ms Denes ordered him to be supervised by the Probation and Parole service.
