David Charles Glennie jailed for choking partner

David Charles Glennie’s temper boiled over during a booze-fuelled night on the town in November last year over an irrational belief his partner was cheating on him.

Glennie, 38, pleaded guilty in Brisbane District Court on Wednesday to four counts of assault occasioning bodily harm, two counts of strangulation and deprivation of liberty.

The court was told Glennie and his partner of five months went out for drinks in Brisbane on November 23 last year.

Crown prosecutor Chontelle Farnsworth said when the pair returned to their hotel room later that night, Glennie repeatedly punched, kicked and slapped his partner.

David Charles Glennie subjected his partner to a terrifying domestic tirade in November last year, where he punched, kicked and choked her until she couldn’t breathe. On Wednesday, he was jailed for three and a half years.

“He threw her to the ground, jumped on top of her and strangled her,” Ms Farnsworth said.

Glennie choked the woman again, this time until she couldn’t breathe and she urinated on the floor.

Ms Farnsworth said the woman couldn’t breathe for a few seconds and was spitting out bile.

“She thought she was going to die,” she said.

When the woman attempted to leave, Glennie jumped in front of her and blocked her way.

Despite repeated pleas for an ambulance, he refused to call one.

Authorities were alerted when the woman convinced Glennie to let her go out for a smoke.

Glennie was arrested in Tweed Heads on November 30 on a separate drug matter and was extradited to Queensland to appear on the charges.

Ms Farnsworth called for a head sentence of three-and-a-half to four years’ jail, calling Glennie’s actions “completely unwarranted and absolutely unacceptable”.

Defence lawyer Robert Glenday said Glennie struggled with alcohol dependency, which stemmed from trauma he suffered as a young boy.

Mr Glenday said his client was seeking treatment in prison but had limited access to rehabilitation programs due to coronavirus lockdowns.

“He knows what the problem is and he needs to do something about it,” he said.

In sentencing Glennie to three-and-a-half years’ jail, Judge Paul Smith urged him to think of his daughters who didn’t want to “see him in jail”.

“Unless you deal with your alcohol dependency... this will just get longer and longer,” Judge Smith said.

“(Your daughters) are ladies as well, you wouldn’t want their partners treating them like you treated this lady, would you?”

Glennie will be eligible for parole on January 19 next year.
