Wallace Gordon, 35, will spend the next year in prison for beating up his ex-common-law-wife on March 7 of this year.

Tenielle Williams, 34, reported to police that just after 6:50 a.m. on March 7 she was at her Kings Park home when Gordon visited requesting to see their baby boy. She refused to let him see the baby. Williams told him to go through the courts to see the child. It was then that Gordon forced himself in and a struggle ensued. According to Williams, Gordon punched her in the face at least two times before leaving the house. Williams made a report to police about the incident and also informed them that Gordon had her passport. When police detained Gordon he told them that he accidentally hit Williams but admitted that he took her passport and tore it up.

Gordon appeared before Chief Magistrate Anne Marie Smith to answer to charges of harm and damage to property on Friday, August 29. The trial was finished in less than an hour as Chief Magistrate Smith found Gordon guilty of both charges. He was sentenced to one year imprisonment for harm and six months for damage to property. The Chief Magistrate ordered that the sentences run concurrently; therfore, he will serve a maximum time of one year.
