Ajet Brahimi considers sentencing indication

​A PORTLAND man who has already spent more than 100 days in custody on charges mainly relating to breaching intervention orders is considering a proposed 12-month jail sentence.

​Ajet Brahimi, 43, of McLean Court, appeared in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court for a contest mention hearing this week charged with a range of offences including breaching intervention orders, assault, theft and unlicensed driving.

In a sentencing indication, magistrate John Lesser said he would jail Mr Brahimi for 12 months to be followed by an 18-month community corrections order.

He said the repetition of offending was an aggravating feature and Mr Brahimi had previously served time on parole.

Mr Brahimi requested time to consider the sentence and the case will be back in court on Tuesday next week.

Police said an intervention order was put in place during May last year protecting Mr Brahimi's former partner.

On November 11 last year the woman took Mr Brahimi to hospital in a wheelchair and left him in the waiting room while she parked her car.

He left the hospital and the woman found him walking in Otway Street.

When she approached him to assist, Mr Brahimi tried to strike the woman with a small rod, got out of his wheelchair, hopped in the woman's car and drove off.

The woman had to jump out of the way to avoid being hit.

When interviewed by police, Mr Brahimi said he left the hospital because he thought the woman was going to rob his home.

He denied taking her car or assaulting her.

On January 19 Mr Brahimi went to a Browning Street home in breach of an intervention order, bashed on the front door and screamed abuse.

Early the next month Mr Brahimi breached his order again by being at the woman's home.

On February 27 Mr Brahimi shaped up to a man in McLean Court in breach of another order, later in the day abused the protected  person and twice threw rocks at him.

On April 10 Mr Brahimi approached his former partner, grabbed her by the left shoulder, tried to kiss her and she kicked him.

He said "if I can't have you, no one can. I know where your daughter lives and works" before  threatening the woman again. 

Being charged also breached a current community corrections order.
