20 Y O Accused Of Intimidating Judicial Officer

A 20-year-old is accused of lashing out at a bunch of people after he was arrested last Thursday.

The Manunda man was on a bail act warrant and taken to the Cairns Watchhouse.

Last Friday, the man appeared in the Cairns Magistrates Court where it’s alleged he had a disagreement with his solicitor before launching on a tirade of abuse and threats directed at the Magistrate.

The man was returned to the Cairns Watchhouse where detectives charged him with one count of intimidation against a judicial officer.

The man fronted Cairns Magistrates Court on Saturday and was remanded to reappear in the Cairns Magistrates Court on May 13.
