Woman gets drunk, breaches DV order and defecates on partner
A 53-YEAR-OLD woman has been placed on parole after defecating in her partner's lap following a heavy drinking session.
The woman was on a domestic violence order and had been ordered to stay away from her partner, but on August 19 Bundaberg police responded to a disturbance at the woman's home to find the man in an upstairs toilet covered in faeces.
Bundaberg Police Prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said at about 7pm police arrived at the address and entered the property through an unlocked front door.
"They found the defendant sitting in the lounge room in total darkness," he said.
Sgt Stevens said the defendant told them there was no one else in the house but officers found the victim in an upstairs toilet.
He said the victim told them the defendant had defecated over his lap.
Officers also noted faeces on the couch and lounge room floor.
"Officers also noted faeces on the couch and lounge room floor," Sgt Stevens said.
Sgt Stevens told the court just three days earlier the defendant was intercepted by police and found to be driving while under the influence of alcohol, recording a reading of 0.167%.
On September 2, the defendant was once again found to be in contact with her partner after police responded to a incident at his home.
Heavily intoxicated, the defendant spat on the back seat of a police car while being removed from the property.
Magistrate Deb Vasta described the relationship between the defendant and the victim as "toxic".
Probation and parole officer Greg McMahon and Sgt Stevens did not seek further time in jail given the defendant had already spent 56 days behind bars.
"We are not saying she's a bad character but when she gets out of custody we want to address the issues and help her," Mr McMahon said.
The woman was disqualified from driving for 12 months.
Mrs Vasta released the woman on parole and placed her on a 12 month probation order and urged her to seek counselling to overcome her alcohol and emotional issues.
