Stalking case continues against Cr Dudzik

By Caitlin Bewley
(2nd Yr Swinburne Uni)

A man who, according to police prosecution “referred to himself as Jesus

Christ”, appeared before Magistrate Ron Saines in the Bacchus Marsh
Magistrates’ court on Friday 8 March.
Bacchus Marsh Love Close resident, 51-year-old Godwin Aquilina,
attended court in hopes to obtain a sentence indication, but the accused’s
lawyer said she was “unable to persuade him” [in his plea of guilty or not
The court heard after Aquilina erected a large structure of a plastic doll
on a gantry in his backyard, members of Moorabool Shire council, along
with police, attend the scene to remove said structure on May 31 of last
It was alleged by the prosecution, Senior Constable Lisa Schoemaker,
the accused “became aggressive and verbally abusive” towards council
members and police.
“I’m getting raped financially, raped emotionally,” the accused allegedly
said. “It is my creation and it showed the level of corruption in the council.”
Aquilina’s offending occurred between the end of 2017 through to late
last year, and involved charges of stalking a Moorabool Shire Councillor,
Tonia Dudzik.
On November 11 of 2017, it was alleged Aquilina called the victim and
told her that he was going to harm her and to not tell anyone about the
Senior Constable Schoemaker went on to tell the court Aquilina allegedly
told Cr Dudzik that she was “number 19 on his list”.
On May 5 Aquilina attended a fundraiser that Cr Dudzik was working at.
The prosecutor said Dudzik “felt a sharp jab in her back”, and after seeing
the accused at said event “she felt scared”.
On June 27, the accused allegedly covered a cubby house, that Cr Dudzik
had given to Aquilina for his children when the two were on good terms
some years ago, with black writing.
The graffiti on said cubby house read “frack me you bully”, which the
prosecutor said “[Dudzik] felt threatened” by.
Mr Aquilina’s case was adjourned for a full day contested hearing on
August 14 in the Ballarat Magistrates’ court. The gantry and plastic doll erected in a backyard of a Love Close property. Photo Helen Tatchell

Ballan Brumbies have four junior teams and one senior team
qualified for finals. 
Club Vice President Jarrod Prosser said the club is extremely
appreciative of their juniors, “the application and growth
they’ve shown this season.”
“To have so many teams play finals, for a developing club
like ours, is a fantastic achievement. For the seniors, we’re
happy to still be playing,” he said.
“But we’re going all out for the title. Ultimately though, it’s
our juniors that we’re most proud of.”
In addition to the four teams qualified, two other junior
teams barely missed finals qualification. 
Semi-finals take place in Ballarat this Saturday, with the
Grand Finals taking place Saturday week.

Lions bow out of

finals race
Darley Cricket Club’s season is
officially over after the second and
fourth grades and Under 15s and 17s
were all eliminated last weekend.
The Lions Under 10s ensured the
club wouldn’t miss out on silverware
completely, winning their Grand
Final on first innings.
Unfortunately for the senior sides there was disappointment
and heartbreak.
The Lions Second XI had Dunnstown reeling at 9/155 chasing
193 for victory. A stoic tenth wicket partnership would deny
Darley their opportunity to progress in the tournament with
Dunnstown successfully seeing out the run chase in a real,
on the edge of your seat, thriller.
Darley allrounder Mitch Ward’s patient 50 with the bat and
three wickets with the ball wasn’t enough to get the Lions
over the line.
The Lions One-day B-Grade modest total of 9/169 looked
70-80 runs shy as East Ballarat made light work of their run

chase with seven wickets and 15 overs still up their sleeve.
While the season ending disappointment sets on Darley
Park, there are two players from the One-Day B-Grade line up
who will be able to reflect on their outstanding contributions
with the bat during 2018/19.
