GOOD BEHAVIOUR: A woman who confronted a woman she accused of having an affair with her husband has appeared in Orange Local Court.

A woman has been placed on two 12-month good behaviour bonds for damaging property belonging to a woman she accused of having an affair with her partner.

Rebecca Binks, 34, of Watson Street, Molong, was charged with two counts of damaging property and was represented in Orange Local Court by solicitor Rebecca McIlveen who said her client had paid for repairs.

“She realised her husband was having an affair with the victim, she said she went around there to confront [the victim] and of course things got out of hand,” Ms McIlveen said.

According to police, Binks went to the victim’s house about 10.30pm on February 3, and placed rocks in both driver’s side tyre valves making them deflate.

When the victim went inside Binks struck the wall with her fist, going through the fibro sheeting.
