No bail for group on cop-attack charges

ONE of the people at the centre of an alleged violent attack on Glen Innes police remains on Supreme Court bail while her co-accused are still in custody.

Kasandra Daley is one of four adults and a juvenile accused of the brutal assault of two police officers who tried to arrest one of them about midnight on March 30 in Glen Innes.

Judith Dawn Boney, Samuel Tobias Boney, Brian Joseph Boney, Daley and a juvenile have been in custody since their arrest on March 30.

But Daley took her bid for conditional release to the Supreme Court where she was granted bail by Justice Lucy McCallam to reside at home, where she remains.

During the latest appearance in Armidale Local Court, none of the co-accused in custody made any application for bail and it was formally refused by Magistrate Karen Stafford.

DPP solicitor Peter Woods said the last item in the brief of evidence had been served and now time was needed for negotiations and consideration of the charges.

“The only outstanding item of the brief is a transcript of the triple-0 call, which was served this morning,” he told the court.

Ms Stafford questioned why the adjournment was needed before a solicitor for Daley said his client might not commit on one of the charges.

Police allege Brian Boney released a juvenile from the back of a police paddywagon while two officers were allegedly set upon by others in the group.

The officers retreated and called for backup. The five were arrested and charged with 24 separate offences relating to an alleged home invasion before the attack on police.

Police said a female officer was punched in the head several times, causing the closure of her eye, while another was kicked in the head and sustained cuts, bruising and laceration. The case will return to court in September.
