Herman Steven Pepperill, 24, is charged with grievous harm, three counts of aggravated assault and failing to comply with a restraining order. He allegedly assaulted two children and his wife who had taken out the restraining order. Pepperill was not required to enter a plea when he appeared in court on Wednesday. Crown Prosecutor Kate Ratcliffe said the woman had taken out the restraining order on Pepperill which was served on April 21 this year. Ms Ratcliffe said: The victim had told police where Pepperill was located and they were able to then serve him with the order. The woman was subsequently flogged at the Gapview Hotel because she had sought the order. The prosector said that Pepperill had been jailed for a month for that assault. Ms Ratcliffe said hewas only released on May 20 this year, six days before the incident on May 26 for which he faced court this week. Defence lawyer Simon Kenny applied for bail for his client. He said Pepperill had a recent run of trouble with the woman, who he still considered his wife. Mr Kenny said Pepperill if granted bail would live at Ipolera, about 35km south-west of Hermannsburg. He said his client would not drink alcohol and would only come to Alice Springs for court or in an emergency. Mr Kenny said Pepperill would not have contact with the three people he is accused of attacking. He said Pepperill had told him he had had trouble with alcohol since he moved to Alice Springs two years ago. Magistrate John Birch refused Pepperill bail. He said he was not satisfied he would complywithbail conditions, such as not visiting the three people he is accused of attacking. The case was adjourned until June 20 for a plea or mention and to fix a committal date. Training awards notice THE 2006 NT Train ing Awards are open and Centralians are urged to enter.

Mum, 21, jailed over stabbing By LEE STEHBENS Justice Angel A NORTHERN Territory Supreme Court judge has warned against complacency over the issue of drunken violence among Aborigines in Alice Springs. Justice David Angel made the remarks when he sentenced mother of two Linda Nabarula Wilson, 21, to six years jail after she stabbed her boyfriend outside last years Bassinthedust concert at Anzac Oval. He sentenced Wilson on May 19 during an NT Supreme Court sitting in Alice Springs. Wilson pleaded guilty to the man slaughter of her then-boyfriend Frederick Gibson. Mr Gibson died from blood loss from a 12cm stab wound to his left thigh. JusticeAngelnoted that thevictim had no record of violence in his criminal history. He said: The level of violence and the frequency of violence among Aboriginal people in the Alice Springs area, when on grog, is something that in some cases leads to complacence and we must never be complacent about serious violence. Serious violence will be met with severe punishment by this court. The judge said Wilson was drink ing Moselle at Kunoth Camp near Charles River last September 10. The judge said Wilsons sister and another womanwent to a supermarket on Milner Road. He said the other woman stole a four-pack of steak knives and that evening gave one of the knives to Wilson,which shekept inherpocket. Justice Angel said Wilson told police she and her boyfriend were jealousing before Mr Gibson told her to F--- off. The court heard Mr Gibson then turned away from Wilson and was looking east towards the Todd River when she stabbed him. The stabbing happened between the public toilet block and the Senior Citizens Association building near Anzac Oval. Justice Angel said Mr Gibson walked into theToddRiverwherehe collapsed. He said the man was comforted by some other people before police arrived. Justice Angel said: When asked what she used to stab the victim the offender replied: Knife. I didnt push it right in, only half way. When asked why she stabbed the victim, the offender replied: Because he was jealousing me. When asked why she didnt punch the victim instead of stabbing him she did not reply.
