Judge arrested for domestic violence: SA

The Australian has reported that South Australian District Court judge Sydney Tilmouth has been suspended from hearing criminal cases, as he was arrested and charged on Saturday night with aggravated assault “arising out of a report of a domestic disturbance”.

The Australian also says that the assault charge is “aggravated” if the alleged violence involved a child, a police officer or a weapon.

The case would be sent to a fellow District Court judge if the alleged assault involved serious injury to the victim, otherwise would be heard in a Magistrates Court.

From all reports, Judge Tilmouth has had to date a distinguished legal career, including being credited with setting up the Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement in Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, in the 1970’s.
