A MOUNT Gambier man who assaulted his own sister by grabbing her neck with two hands and throwing her to the ground has been given the benefit of a suspended sentence.
Thomas Beresford Zeverona, 26, appeared in the Mount Gambier Magistrates Court last week to be sentenced for one count of basic assault.
The prosecution said the incident occurred on December 9 at around 3.30pm when the victim received a call from Zeverona.
Zverona then spotted the victim’s car on Jubilee Highway and the pair pulled over.
They became involved in a “yelling match” before the victim suggested it was not an appropriate place
