Marijuana user abused , neglected his children

Otago Daily Times 28 September 2018
Family First Comment:  As Garry Bingle lay in his kitchen in a drug-induced stupor, his two toddlers played by the red-hot element he had used to spot cannabis. It was just one incident in a catalogue of neglect and abuse over a number of years. Judge Kevin Phillips condemned the defendant’s behaviour and jailed him for two years. “The children were defenceless, very young children, children of your blood, children who depended upon you for care, for nurture and for love, and they got seriously abused, physically assaulted and left in danger, because you were more intent on pursuing your addiction than caring for your children.” 
But hey – ‘dope never killed anyone’, eh.

As Garry William Bingle lay in his kitchen in a drug-induced stupor, his two toddlers played by the red-hot element he had used to spot cannabis.

It was just one incident in a catalogue of neglect and abuse over a number of years committed by the 46-year-old, revealed at the Dunedin District Court yesterday.

Bingle previously pleaded guilty to two counts of child neglect as well as charges of threatening to kill and assaulting a female.

His partner described the period of turmoil as “a nightmare”.

Judge Kevin Phillips condemned the defendant’s behaviour and jailed him for two years.

“The children were defenceless, very young children, children of your blood, children who depended upon you for care, for nurture and for love, and they got seriously abused, physically assaulted and left in danger, because you were more intent on pursuing your addiction than caring for your children,” he said.
