Toowoomba horse trainer and assault accused back in court
A TOOWOOMBA horse trainer accused of assaulting two racing stewards has secured permission from the court to move to northern NSW while the matters move through the legal system.
Ronald Earle Maund, 73, stood quietly beside his solicitor Chris Lumme in the Toowoomba Magistrates Court for the brief mention and while variation of his bail conditions was heard.
Maund has been charged with a string of offences arising from the alleged assault of two Queensland Racing Integrity Commission stewards at a Southbrook property last year.
The alleged incident was recorded on the stewards' body cameras.
Maund has not been required to enter pleas to the charges.
During the brief mention in court yesterday, Mr Lumme said his client was no longer able to live at his Toowoomba address for personal reasons, and had found other living arrangements in Ballina.
Mr Lumme said Maund would be able to comply with the existing reporting conditions with Coolangatta police twice a week.
Magistrate Kay Ryan granted the bail variations, and adjourned the matter back to the Toowoomba Magistrates Court on April 26.
