David Gulpilil - Australia Actor Gulpilil Guilty Of Assaulting Wife
Australia star David Gulpilil has been found guilty of assaulting his wife with a broom.
The indigenous Australian actor was charged with aggravated assault after hitting his wife, Miriam Ashley, and breaking her arm during a clash in December (10).
Gulpilil now faces possible jail time for the attack - during a court hearing on Wednesday (21Sep11), Darwin Magistrate John Lowndes ordered a supervision assessment to be completed for sentencing.
Lowndes told the court, "The defendant has put himself up as a role model. (But) sadly he has demolished the virtue of a role model," adding, "the offence in its own right puts him at risk of going to jail".
Gulpilil is due to be sentenced on Thursday (22Sep11).
