July 1, 2016 | By More

Court House-general2A 43-year-old man subject to the bans imposed with an extended supervision order has been charged with going to the South City Mall.

Duane Charles Brendon Paul Burgess, of Sydenham, was arrested yesterday and held in custody overnight before an appearance in the Christchurch District Court on a charge of breaching the ESO.

He is subject to an ESO issued by the courts in May 2013.

The order bans him from entering or loitering on the grounds of any public library, school, park, playground, “or any other area that children under the age of 16 may frequent or congregate within for any purpose including education, entertainment, or religious observation”.

The Probation Service, which laid the charge, was asking for Burgess to be held in custody.

Duty lawyer Kirsty May said Burgess would make no application for bail today and asked for a remand for him to apply for legal aid.

Judge Raoul Neave remanded him in custody without plea to appear at court by video-link from Christchurch Men’s Prison on July 18.
