A VIOLENT Dimboola man who bashed his teenage daughter, partner and brother is due to be released from jail before Christmas.
Gary Texas Bradshaw, 40, appeared in Horsham Magistrate’s Court via video link from custody on Wednesday.
He pleaded guilty to having intentionally caused injury, assault with a weapon, having recklessly caused serious injury, having made threats to kill, having recklessly caused injury, unlawful assault and contravention of an intervention order.
Magistrate Ian von Einem jailed Bradshaw for 10 months and activated his existing three-month suspended sentence.
Bradshaw will serve a six-month non-parole period, less 34 days already served.
Mr von Einem said if Bradshaw reoffended during his seven-month parole period, he would serve that time in jail.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Belinda Ryan told the court about the three sets of criminal matters against Bradshaw.
Bradshaw was reversing his van out of his Dimboola driveway and inadvertently hit a tree on August 1 last year.
His daughter, 14, who was a rear seat passenger, joked about it and Bradshaw said something similar.
Bradshaw then grabbed his daughter by her top, striking her face and continuing to hit her until he cut her top lip.
Bradshaw breached his suspended sentence by committing the assault.
He neither confirmed nor denied the assault when police interviewed him.
Bradshaw then drank beer with his partner, brother and his brother’s girlfriend at a Horsham motel on New Year’s Eve.
Bradshaw flew into a ‘violent rage’ against his brother because he thought his brother wanted to sleep with his partner.
He struck his brother’s head and face several times forcefully, including with a beer can.
His brother was covered in blood and bled profusely.
His injuries included a broken jaw and left eye socket.
Bradshaw told police he kept on hitting his brother ‘to make him stay down’ and it was self-defence.
In April, Bradshaw had an argument with his partner, threatening to kill her.
Bradshaw pushed his partner, grabbed her around the neck, pinned her to the ground, ground his knuckles under her eye and stuck his thumb into her ear until it bled.
An incident on May 4 included Bradshaw throwing his partner’s young child onto a bed until the child bounced.
He later grabbed and yelled at the child, throwing the child onto a bed again.
Bradshaw told police he did nothing.
Defence barrister Robert Thyssen said his client had been on a drinking binge ‘over some days’ when he assaulted his brother.
He said Bradshaw’s partner was ‘not an insubstantial person’ and when he assaulted her it was ‘not a one-way street’.
Mr Thyssen said when Bradshaw threw the child onto the bed it was a ‘game’ and the child was uninjured.
He said his client was on anti-psychotic medication and his prior history was not that bad.
