A Bunbury man convicted of bashing his estranged father until he was unconscious has been fined for breaching his conditional release order, after failing to provide an adequate urine sample for analysis, his counsel admitting he was put off by the presence of another person. Cody James Beasland, 20, appeared in Bunbury Magistrates Court on Thursday where he pleaded guilty to two breaches of a CRO without reasonable excuse. On October 14, Beasland was required to take a urinary analysis test as part of his conditional release order but was unable to provide “enough” of a sample. Beasland asked if he could produce the sample “unsupervised”, admitting he was unable to provide the sample in the presence of another person. He was told he could only do so if he was able to produce a medical certificate, however, he did not have one. Later the same day, he failed to appear for another test on the same grounds. The court was told the CRO related to an incident in which the young man had beat his estranged father to the point where he lost consciousness for two to three minutes, fracturing his jaw in multiple places and requiring the victim to undergo urgent surgery. During a house check on the order over concerns for his mental health and claimed suicidal ideations, Beasland failed to present himself to police — hiding in his wardrobe. When his mother returned home and let the officers inside he yelled at them to get out before pushing one in the chest and grabbing his body armour. Pushing the officer again, Beasland then proceeded to knee the officer in his lower back. When asked why the father had been estranged from Beasland’s life, his duty lawyer told the court he had been an “absent” father. Magistrate Linda Keane handed down a global fine of $200 for the charges.
