Temora man sentenced under new domestic violence laws

A 22 year old Temora man has been sentenced under new domestic violence laws, over a serious assault on his former partner in Temora on New Year’s Eve.

Police say the man fled Temora after the incident, but was arrested after being stopped on an unrelated matter at Tweed Heads last week.

He was bail refused before fronting court this week, where he was found guilty and sentenced to 15 months imprisonment, with a non-parole period of 7 months.
