Local News 3rd March 2017

The three men involved the bashing of a young man in Langtree Avenue almost 2 years ago have been sentenced.

25 year old Riley Allen was sentenced to 6 months prison and a three year community corrections order after his involvement in the attack leaving 21 year old Jaidon Brook with on-going injuries.

25 year old Daniel Aldolph and 27 year old Ashley Kempton were both given community correction orders three years for Aldolph and 2 years for Kempton of community work escaping jail time for their lesser involvement in the fight.

Judge Michael Bourke said yesterday the three men's actions needed to be condemned to deter others from doing the same thing.

Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce says decentralising government agencies will not only create jobs in regional centres and boost their economies but will also save taxpayer funds and ease the housing affordability crisis.

Mr. Joyce says it's time that taxpayer money was spread around so it can benefit more communities, not just Canberra.
