A woman who was barred from entering Mount Magnet earlier this year was allowed to attend a funeral in the Murchison town at the weekend after the ban was lifted on Thursday. Kerry Anne O’Brien last week admitted three counts of breaching a violence restraining order, two counts of criminal damage, and threatening to harm charges which left her unable to travel within 20km of Mount Magnet. The court was told O’Brien started smashing patio and car windows at a Mount Magnet home at 11.50am on May 25 after her former partner told her to move on. O’Brien’s lawyer said the 53-year-old went to the house intent on collecting money from the man, who O’Brien believed had promised “compensation” for her taking care of him during their seven-year relationship. According to police, O’Brien also said she would “cave in” the head of the woman her ex-partner was staying with at the time. Her lawyer said O’Brien had been under the influence of alcohol during the offending and was “extremely remorseful” about her behaviour. She said O’Brien wanted to “get on with her life” in Geraldton, where she now lived. Magistrate Erin O’Donnell advised O’Brien to “forget about” her former partner. O’Brien was given a 10-month community-based order to attend support programs.
