Young female charged with assault
A JUVENILE female charged with the assault of a Warwick teenager late last year has appeared again in the Children’s Court in Warwick.
The defendant, who cannot be named at this time due to her age, appeared briefly before Magistrate Anne Thacker yesterday.
The girl was charged with assault after an incident which allegedly took place at Loch Lomond on the evening of Saturday, November 14.
A large group of high school students was understood to be attending an end-of-exams celebration at the property.
Warwick teen Emma Guy received facial injuries as a result of an altercation during the evening and required hospitalisation.
Duty solicitor Phil Crook yesterday told the court the defendant was seeking legal advice from a lawyer in Toowoomba and was unable to travel there at this time due to her mother’s vehicle not being driveable.
The matter has been set down for further mention in the Children’s’ Court on April 19.
The defendant remains on bail awaiting her next appearance conditional on having no contact with the alleged victim.
