A WARRNAMBOOL woman with a history of breaching intervention orders has been remanded in custody.
Peta Plowright, 33, of Wickham Court, was remanded in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court this week after allegedly breaching an intervention order.
Earlier this month Plowright was sentenced to seven days’ imprisonment for breaching an intervention order against her partner.
At the time magistrate Jonathan Klestadt said he feared he would end up the coroner on an inquest if the violent relationship continued.
The court heard that Plowright and her partner were watching the AFL grand final on September 29 at a friend’s house when an argument broke out.
When the couple returned home, the argument had escalated and Plowright punched and scratched her partner. Both had been drinking and the partner called police.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Paul Harris said police observed a small cut to the victim’s eye. There was an intervention order in place which prohibited Plowright from committing family violence.
Interviewed by police, Plowright claimed she was defending herself. The victim had declined to make a statement or tell police what had happened.
On May 10, Plowright pleaded guilty to assaulting police and assaulting the same victim and was given a three-month suspended sentence and community corrections order. On May 18, the orders were breached and she served three months in jail before being released on August 30.
Plowright was on parole at the time of the alleged breach and was remanded to appear on November 6.
