Bradley reprimanded whilst Judd has no case to answer
Kepler Bradley, Fremantle, has been charged with a level one striking offence against Bret Thornton, Carlton, during the third quarter of the round 13 match between Fremantle and Carlton, played at Etihad Stadium on Saturday June 19, 2010.
In summary, his previous good record means he can accept a reprimand and 45 points towards his future record with an early plea.
The incident was assessed as reckless conduct (two points), low impact (one point) and body contact (two points). This is a total of four activation points, resulting in a classification of a Level One offence, drawing 80 demerit points and a reprimand. He has an existing five-year good record, which reduces the penalty by 25 per cent to a reprimand and 60 points towards his future record. An early plea reduces the sanction by 25 per cent to a reprimand and 45 points towards his future record.
Contact between Carlton’s Chris Judd and Fremantle’s Matthew Pavlich from the third quarter of Saturday’s match was assessed. Contact was below that required to constitute a reportable offence. No further action was taken.
