David Gulpilil - David Gulpilil Sentenced To Prison Over Wife Clash

Indigenous Australian actor David Gulpilil has been sentenced to at least five months in prison for assaulting his wife.
The Crocodile Dundee and Australia star pleaded guilty to aggravated assault during a court hearing on Wednesday (21Sep11) after an altercation with his wife, Miriam Ashley, in December (10).
On Thursday (22Sep11), Darwin magistrate John Lowndes handed Gulpilil a 12-month sentence, suspended after five months.
Gulpilil's lawyer, Eugene Schofield, is adamant his client will turn his life around when he leaves jail.
He says, "He was very reluctant to go to prison... He intends to attend rehab when he comes out, and I understand he has a few films in the pipeline."
