Mum and girl attack man with bottle

A FRASER Coast mum narrowly avoided jail after she and her daughter beat a man and threatened him with a bottle in a frightening home invasion.

The pair, who were accompanied by the mum's sister, alleged the man said something inappropriate to the girl who was just 15 at the time.

The woman, who the Chronicle has not named, pleaded guilty in Maryborough District Court to breaking and entering, assault occasioning bodily harm and three counts of common assault.

Crown prosecutor Susan Hedge said the trio, led by the woman, went to the man's home to confront him about the remarks on November 18, 2014.

The man was sitting in an enclosed area on his porch when the women approached, breaking the door down to reach him.

She said while there they began to punch and hit the man repeatedly in the face and head.

"They held him against the wall and hit him in the head with a glass bottle," Ms Hedge said.

She said when the trio were leaving; the woman's sister yelled that she had hepatitis B.

The trio lived only metres from the man's home and when police arrived and questioned them, they said they had never been to the man's home.

"He was vulnerable in that there was one of him and three of them," Ms Hedge said.

Defence barrister Paul Rutledge said the woman regretted her actions and had recently recognised she had a problem with alcohol.

He said the woman had recently taken steps to address her problem and was responding well to counselling sessions.

Mr Rutledge said the woman had struggled to raise four children on her own after their father suddenly left her when she was still quite young.

Judge Douglas McGill said the woman should not have taken justice to her own hands.

"It was put that you at least thought there was some justification to your behaviour," he said.

"It certainly does not justify any anger of violence."

He gave the woman a head sentence of 18 months in prison.

The sentence was wholly suspended for two years.

The woman's daughter was last year sentenced in the children's court to 12 months probation.
