Man who fled fined for drugs

A MAN who fled the courthouse in Childers will spend at least the next week behind bars in Maryborough.

Ulan Hamilton Parter, 21, was remanded in custody in Maryborough Magistrates Court yesterday.

The court heard he allegedly escaped custody in the court in Childers on November 16, when he was facing a charge of robbery with violence.

At the time, Bundaberg Police Superintendent Rowan Bond said Mr Parter simply "ran out the door" of the court in Childers, after being told by the magistrate he would be remanded in custody.

After being apprehended in the Maryborough Police District, Mr Parter appeared in court, where he also faced three drug-related charges.

He pleaded guilty to the drug charges, and Magistrate John Smith fined him $1050.

Mr Parter's sentencing for the escaping lawful custody charge was adjourned until December 4, and bail was not sought.

The robbery charge which originally saw him front the court was also adjourned.

A committal mention date of January 15 was set for this charge.
