David Gulpilil - Aussie Actor David Gulpilil Back In Court
Indigenous Australian actor David Gulpilil appeared in court in Darwin on Friday (11May12) accused of breaching the conditions of his suspended prison sentence.
The Crocodile Dundee star, who also appeared in Baz Luhrmann's Australia, was convicted of aggravated assault last year (11) for breaking his wife's arm with a broom and he was sentenced to a year in jail, suspended after five months.
However, Gulpilil was hauled back to Darwin Magistrates Court this week (beg07May12) to face accusations he failed to adhere to the terms of his release.
Magistrate John Lowndes handed Gulpilil, 58, a new seven-month suspended sentence which means he must not re-offend for 15 months, and he is also banned from purchasing alcohol.
