Man to take flight down memory lane courtesy of police
A MAN is set to be extradited to Victoria on Tuesday morning to complete a sentence handed down 10 years ago in Melbourne.
Scott Lawrence Wright, 39, is due to be escorted back by two detectives from the Victorian police force on the 9.25am flight out of Hervey Bay.
Wright appeared in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on Monday after being arrested on an outstanding warrant and spending the weekend in the watch house.
The court heard Wright was wanted for failing to complete an intensive corrections order handed down in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on June 30, 2003.
An intensive corrections order is a sentence considered more serious than parole, without reaching the level of a term of imprisonment.
The charge for which Wright was originally sentenced in Victoria was causing a serious injury, believed to be similar to the Queensland charge of assault occasioning bodily harm.
Magistrate Graeme Tatnell said he hoped Wright was ready for another cold night in the watchhouse before Tuesday morning's flight.
"Maybe they will give me another blanket," Wright said.
