A recording of the incident was played in court yesterday in which Rayson, after he was remanded in custody, began shouting 'come here' repeatedly, referring to the Judge as 'big man'.
He then called out 'I will punch your f***ing face in you d***head'.Not a very sensible thing to do?
In mitigation his defence barrister Jane Brady said that her client was sorry for what he had done and being placed into custody was a 'tipping point' which led to his outburst.That outburst got him an extra month in jail.
But....why was he so upset? It's not like he's any stranger to jail, after all?
The court heard Rayson, a father-of-one, has 22 convictions for crimes including assault, drugs crimes, and public order offences.
But Anthony McGeorge, defending, said his client was keen to “change his ways”. He said: “He is a young man, who in my submission, needs help.”
Rayson also asked for eight other crimes to be taken into consideration – four thefts, three burglaries, and a taking of a car without the owner’s consent.I guess he didn't change his ways after all, Anthony. Still, you got paid, and you probably don't live anywhere near him, so it's all good, eh?
