Killer John Holschier to move from Wagga after his release

Holschier was jailed in 1991 for murdering his partner and grievously harming their 13-month-old child in the attack at Chatswood, and releasedin 2014.

Butthree months later the Supreme Court made a three-year high-risk violent offender extended supervision order that restricted Holschier’s freedom.

Holschier was put back behind bars on November 24 last year after being charged with three counts of failing to comply with the order.

Two of the allegations were dropped in Wagga Local Court on Friday after 49-year-old Holschier pleaded guilty to one of the offences –allowing the battery of his electronic monitoring bracelet to go flat.

According to agreed facts tendered to the court, Holschier became upset when a Community Corrections officer visited his central Wagga home on November 23 and said he was not going to charge the anklet.

Holschier made good on his threat, leading to police arresting him the next day after the battery went flat.

He has been in custody since.

Representing Holschier in court, Tumut solicitor Rod Kennedy said his client would be relocated after release from custody, and would abide by the supervision order.

“He needs to be monitored, he knows that,” Mr Kennedy said. “He tells me that is what he is going to do.”

Crown solicitor, Brett Thomson, in his submission to magistrate Erin Kennedy said Holschier’s rehabilitation would come only with his co-operation.

Ms Kennedy sentenced Holschier to a five-month fixedjail termbackdated to his arrest.

Ms Kennedy told Holschier the community wanted him to livepeacefully in the community.

“No-one wants you to re-offend,” Ms Kennedy said.

“I don’t want to re-offend either, your honour,” Holschier replied.

Young leaders impress the PM

By |

Britney Bierton and Mikayla Barnes with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, NowChem’s managing director John Lamont and Federal Member for Gilmore Ann Sudmalis.YOU can see why local high school students Britney Bierton and Mikayla Barnes were given the chance to meet Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull during his visit to Nowra on Friday.
Nanjing Night Net

The two 17-year-old Year 12 students want to help improve the lives of local people.

Hopefully Mr Turnbull, who inspected progressive local business NowChem and visited the Nowra Show during his trip, will listen and learn from these wise teenagers.

Britney Bierton, a Nowra Anglican College student, has an affinity with people struggling in life.

“Being the person I am, I am always looking out for the less fortunate people – the homeless and people caught up with the drug epidemic down here – I feel for those kinds of things,” Britney said.

Nowra High School captain Mikayla Barnesalso wants to make a difference improvingthe area and helping others.

“I did not get to mention youth unemployment to the Prime Minister but hopefully will during the next visit,” Mikayla said.

“I think the South Coast Youth Leadership Forum, which is run by John Lamont, definitely helped people get involved in areas like unemployment.”

She said the forum gave people the confidence to just go out and look for a job.

Mikayla recently sent a letter to the Prime Minister but Mr Turnbull has not yet replied.

In letter she asked the Prime Minister to help open up more jobs in the Shoalhaven.

Britney enjoyed meeting Mr Turnbull.

“I was amazing and I had no idea on who I would be meeting. I walked to NowChem and I saw Malcolm Turnbull just there,” she said while pointing to the spot where she met the PM.

“We just knew we would be seeing a senior minister and that was it.

“I got a call to come along.

“We shared a few words and he said congratulations on my traineeship. I definitely feel inspired now.”

Britney will be studying her school based traineeship at NowChem.

Britney attended theSouth Coast Youth Leadership Forum which was heavily supported by NowChem’s managing director John Lamont.

She hopes to learn from Mr Lamont.

“I have had the opportunity to attended his leadership forums and and now I get the chance to work beneath Mr Lamont – it’s an amazing experience,” she said.

Mikayla is eyeing off bigger leadership roles.

“I was a bit nervous about meeting the Prime Minister and I am not going to lie about it,” Mikayla said.

“I asked him how he got to where he is now because I am looking at going into that area

“I guess I have really been interested in politics from a young age and was brought up around it with my family sitting around the kitchen table telling me about the likes of John Howard when I was growing up.”

Mikayla said youth unemployment was one of the biggest issues facing the Shoalhaven.
