He was sentenced to six months in jail, which was backdated to April 27 to take into account time he has already spent in custody on remand. The sentence will be suspended after three months, meaning he will be released at the end of July. The 24-year-old pleaded guilty in the Alice Springs Magistrates Court yesterday to one count of aggravated assault of a woman in the early hours of March 28. Two other assault charges and a count of causing serious harm were withdrawn. The court was told the in cident began after an argument between Jurrahs current partner and his previous partner. The victim was not involved in the argument, but had allegedly smashed the rear window of a car. Jurrah pushed her from behind and hit her twice in the head, while his coaccused Mathius Walker, 32, hit and kicked her, the court heard. Walker was sentenced to seven months jail. Jurrah walked free from the Alice Springs court in March after being acquitted of attacking his cousin with a machete last year. He made his AFL debut in 2009 and played 36 games for Melbourne. The club delisted him at the end of last season, but he has since signed on to play for local club South Alice Springs. US Marines locked in for Darwin THE Defence Minister Stephen Smith will today announce there will be 1150 US Marines on six-month rotation stationed in Darwin next year. He said results of an assessment of social impacts were expected to be positive or neutral, and that the economic impact would be modest and positive. The increase in numbers was revealed in yesterdays NT News but the ministers office had said that they were not ready to make an announcement. While there is potential for some negative social impacts, these were not judged to be large enough to cause concern to the great majority of people consulted, Mr Smith said. He said most of the Marines will be housed at Robertson Barracks, with a smaller aviation support contingent of around 130 at RAAF Darwin, along with four heavy-lift helicopters. He said it would provide better training but they would not go up to a full complement of 2500 Marines before 2016. The Marines are stationed in the Top End over the dry season. The second six-month rotation of 200 Marines began on April 21.
