A Eurobodalla woman has been refused bail on charges related to entering a dwelling and recklessly wounding an alleged victim.
Frances Mary Aiken, 34, Bodalla, faced Batemans Bay Local Court on Monday, November 6, charged with reckless wounding, aggravated enter dwelling with intent to commit serious indictable offence while armed and armed with intent to commit indictable offence.
Police prosecutor Mark Chaplin opposed bail and said Aiken posed an unacceptable risk to the community and the alleged victim.
“These are particularly serious charges with a very serious set of circumstances that give rise to them,” Mr Chaplin said.
He said Aiken had failed to appear in court on previous cases and was likely to receive a custodial sentence if convicted for the fresh matter.
Defence solicitor Adam Sumbak said Aiken did not present a risk to the alleged victim or the witnesses and suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and depression after her involvement in a fatal motor vehicle accident.
Magistrate Doug Dick refused the application, noting Aiken’s long criminal history, which included 29 sentence matters, 12 of those having involved violence.
Mr Dick said her history was littered with violent offences, including a custodial sentence in 2012.
“These allegations arise when other matters of violence were pending before the court,” he said.
The court heard Aiken had an assault allegation before Narooma Local Court.
The matter will return to Batemans Bay Local Court on December 11.
