A man who was “ being reckless by
drinking and driving” was sentenced to
six months’ super vision, 160 hours of
community work, and ordered to pay
$5500 in reparation.
On April 11, Carl David Rothera was
driving in Runanga when he pulled in
behind a car.
When the car in front of him
stopped, he failed to slow and drove
into the back of it, ramming it into the
car in front.
Rothera was blood tested, which
produced a result of 128mg of alcohol
per 100ml of blood.
Lawyer Richard Bodle said Rothera
had recently lost his job at Sicon
Ferguson, which had wound up.
However, he had his name down
with an employment provider in
Christchurch and was looking at work
Mr Bodle said Rothera’s home address
could be addressed for suitability for
an electronically monitored sentence,
however getting him back into work
was important, the lawyer said.
He said Rothera had been at a classic
car meeting, had drunk, not eaten, and
then had some more to drink with
some friends the next day.
Judge Brian Callaghan said Rothera
had been “reckless by driving recklessly,
and reckless by not paying attention to
the road ahead”.
On top of his sentence, he was ordered
to pay $4675 to the victim’s insurance
company, and make a $1000 emotional
harm repayment to the victim.
He was banned indefinitely, and once
he got his licence back would be on a
zero alcohol licence for three years.
Man lost job,
A Kaiata man who punched and
twice slapped his former partner’s
friend after some “ banter” between
the two, today accepted a possible
sentence of community detention and
Lawrence Moana Waiwai was earlier
charged with assaulting a female,
which he denied. However, he changed
his plea to guilty after it was amended
by police to one of common assault.
The Greymouth District Court
heard today that on December 15, the
victim had been having dinner at the
house that Waiwai shared with his
then partner. He was out the back of
the house, and had drunk four beers.
When he came inside he engaged in
some “ banter” with his partner’s friend.
Taking offence at comments she
made, Waiwai punched her and
slapped her twice, knocking her off
her chair. She sustained swelling to the
face and had skin taken off her nose.
She fled the scene after the incident.
Waiwai refused to make any comment
to police about the attack.
The court heard that Waiwai had
enrolled himself on a parenting
through separation course, and
Community Probation said he had a
good record of completing his previous
community work sentences.
Judge Brian Callaghan said Waiwai
had a “propensity to hit women ...
that’s my worry”.
However, he said that “looking at the
injuries the victim sustained, they were
The judge said he would be prepared
to look at a sentence of community
detention and community work,
subject to a pre-sentence report on
Waiwai was also remanded for
restorative justice between him and the
victim to be considered.
“This of course depends on you
remaining out of any trouble in the
meantime,” Judge Callaghan said.
A Greymouth District Court hearing
of Kevin John Mossley, 47, of Cobden,
to defend charges of threatening
behaviour, cannabis possession and
breach of bail was adjourned to
October 20 to allow a review of the
case to take place.
Man punches, slaps
woman after ‘banter’
The Greymouth District Court
hearing of a Cobden woman charged
with misusing a trailer could not
go ahead due to the lack of audio
visual facilities at the Queenstown
Veanna Christina Payne was charged
with misusing a trailer, which lawyer
Richard Bodle said had belonged to
the father of Payne’s former landlady
in Q ueenstown.
Payne alleged that because she was
in rent arrears, she and her partner
had agreed to help clear the section on
which they were living.
When they came across the trailer,
they offered to help their landlady sell
However, when the woman’s father,
who owned the trailer, found that it
had been sold it became a “significant
Mr Bodle said it was a 1960s home-
built construction, had not been on the
road for many years, and was described
There was no chance of resolution
between the parties as Payne said
they had received $100 for the trailer,
however the complainants said the
trailer was worth $650.
Police said the victim was not
prepared to make the trip up from
Queenstown to appear in Greymouth
as she was out of pocket for the trailer,
and had already gone to the expense
of making one trip from Q ueenstown
when the hearing had also not gone
There were also no audio-visual
facilities at the court in Queenstown to
enable the witness to give evidence to
the Greymouth court.
Therefore, Judge Brian Callaghan
agreed to remand the case to D unedin
District Court, on October 15.

A Greymouth man who allowed his home to be used for
smoking cannabis was yesterday sentenced to two months’
community detention and 120 hours of community work.
Riaz Khan, 20, was convicted in the Greymouth District
A police search of Khan’s home on April 22 found a
sports drink bottle adapted into a bong.
Dried stalks of cannabis were also found at the property,
and 4g of the drug in his bedroom.
Khan told police the bong was his, but he did not smoke
any more cannabis than his flatmate.
Judge Brian Callaghan said that if it had been Khan’s
first drugs offence he would have been content to impose
a sentence of just community work.
However, as he had a history of drug offending the
punishment needed to “go a step up”.
