WODONGA, Australia — A former youth who pointed an imitation pistol at an off-duty police officer and his two children yesterday received a seven-month suspended control order without conviction.
Magistrate Tony Murray said in Albury Children's Court the youth put the officer and his two children, aged 11 and 7, in considerable fear during an incident at an Albury intersection.
