Man who robbed priest sent to jail

| September 21, 2010

DANIEL Little breached his good behaviour bonds in one of the worst ways possible – robbing a priest of his congregation's weekend offerings.

Little, 24, was given two three-year good behaviour bonds in Wagga Local Court on May 26, 2008, when convicted of assault occasioning actual bodily harm and malicious damage.

Little had smashed holes in the internal walls of his partner's Ashmont house while she was out and when she came home he grabbed her around the throat so tight she could not breathe.

Just five months after pledging to be of good behaviour for three years, Little and a juvenile bailed up a priest in the presbytery of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church in Bourke Street and stole about $3000. He was arrested on July 8, 2009 and charged with robbery in company.

In Wagga District Court last month he was sentenced to three years and nine months in jail from when he went into custody, with a non-parole period of two years and three months.

In Wagga Local Court yesterday, Little admitted the two bonds and the breaches.

He was sentenced to concurrent two-month fixed terms starting yesterday.

The sentences will expire on November 19, just under a year before he is eligible for parole for the robbery.
