    Brisbane: Paroled after assaulting police and then telling them he had AIDS

    Benjamin Andrew Slingsby jailed for assaulting police and then telling them he had AIDS | Courier Mail

    A MAN who taunted police claiming he had AIDS and hoped they contracted it when he bled on them has today been jailed for six-months, but then released on immediate parole.

    The Brisbane District Court was told Benjamin Andrew Slingsby assaulted two police constables when they went to his Forest Lake home, 25km southwest of Brisbane, on July 9 last year.

    Slingsby, 46, a self-employed builder, today pleaded guilty to two counts of serious assault. Prosecutor David Nardone said the officers followed Slingsby to his home after receiving a report from his then estranged wife that he had been to her home and was bleeding profusely after cutting his arm when he smashed a window. He said the two constable's tried to stop Slingsby from entering his home and that blood from his cut arm was flung on to the skin of the officers.

    The court was told Slingsby then said to the officers: ``You've got my blood all over you. I've got AIDs and I hope you (expletive deleted) get it.''

    Mr Nardone said both officers became instantly distressed after having had Slingsby's blood smeared across their head and torso, with one officer getting blood in his mouth. He said when Slingsby noticed the officers' were distressed he promptly told them:

    ``Mate, I don't have AIDS. I just said it to scare you.''

    The court was told both officers endured six months of intense stress and pressure on their relationships, in particularly when it came to being intimate with their respective partners, until blood tests conclusively proved they had not contracted any communicable diseases.

    ``(Slingby's actions) demonstrated a level of vindictiveness and a lack of remorse,'' Mr Nardon said.

    Barrister Tom Williamson, for Slingsby, said his client was heavily intoxicated at the time of the offence and was deeply sorry for his actions.

    ``My client apologises for his conduct,'' he said. ``He is sorry for what happened (and) there are no excuses of course.''

    Judge Marshall Irwin, in sentencing Slingsby, described the builder’s actions of the night as abhorrent. He also ordered Slingsby pay each officer $1000 in compensation, but indicated the sum would not prevent either officer from making a further claim for criminal compensation or suing Slingsby in the civil jurisdiction.

    Sounds about right for Australian law - do what you like to the coppers and then wonder why they don't want to help when you need them - get rid of all the coppers , tear up all the laws , give everybody a gun and then see how many bullies are left?
    Not like the old west in America , no face to face just shoot the bastard who annoys you when you know you have the upper hand. - seems fairer to me ?
    Hope they sue the arse of this prick.
