Elder Abuse: Grandmother Regrets Reporting Violent Grandson (Melb. Australia)

Grandmother Patricia Inglis sorry for reporting violent grandson
December 18, 2008
By Shelley Hadfield

A LOVING grandmother has told a court she regrets calling police after her heroin addict grandson bashed and tried to strangle her for $60.

Patricia Mary Inglis, 79, who thought she was going to die in the attack, fears she may never see her grandson again if he is sent to jail. Brett Andrew Dolan, 36, savagely attacked his granny while she lay in bed at her Braybrook home because she refused to give him money to buy heroin. Days later, he rang threatening to kill her.

He was arrested on March 27 and charged with attempted murder. The charge was withdrawn and he pleaded guilty to robbery, recklessly causing injury, making a threat to kill and possessing a drug of dependence.

Justice Curtain will sentence Dolan tomorrow.
