Teenager Avoids Jail Sentence
A Sunshine Coast teenager who allegedly stalked, bashed and robbed a former friend has avoided jail so he can continue his mental health rehabilitation.
Trae John Joseph Predo was 17 when he committed the offences against an 18-year-old friend last year.
Judge Robertson yesterday referred to Predo’s harassment of his friend through a vast number of phone calls as “bizarre”, noting some of the calls contained threats.
It was during the period of phone stalking when Predo arranged on March 12 last year to meet his friend at a park at Mooloolah about 9.30pm.
