Radovanovic pleaded guilty to four charges after the Rose Bay family travelled to NSW’s northern rivers
The former gyprocker was already serving a community corrections order following a police chase while driving under the influence of alcohol, and a skirmish probation order after joining a fight.
Justice Paul Mulroney said all the crimes involved a disregard for public health and safety.
“He didn’t care at all about the rest of the community,” he said.
‘What he did was not only irresponsible, not only criminal, but he had the real potential to seriously endanger the life and well-being of the community.
“I am imposing substantial fines to take home to other people who do not think this is serious … there should be significant consequences.”
Attorney David Newham said that Kristian Radovanovic’s father had twice tried to buy property in the Northern Rivers region in 2020, but in June 2021 his main business partner inspected a farm and essentially communicated ‘this is the one ‘.
When a Serbian father tells his son to jump, Mr. Newham asks “how high?”
“At the time, they did not know they were infected with Covid-19,” the lawyer said.
The family packed up some belongings and traveled to Byron Bay on July 31 to inspect the land, but was disappointed.
The father, Zoran, made an offer for a property in Nimbin on August 5, but at the time he was having difficulty breathing which he guessed was his chronic asthma.
Days later, the 52-year-old man was admitted to hospital with the virus, subsequently leading Byron Bay and surrounding areas into a week-long lockdown in August.
Newham said his client accepted that there was no excuse for his behavior, but noted that “half the people around were doing the same.”
Zoran Radovanovic’s case is also mentioned in the Lismore Local Court on Monday.
