NSW Police Sued for Allegedly Tasing Great-Grandmother’s Family

The state of New South Wales is being sued by the family of a 95-year-old great-grandmother who passed away in May, allegedly after being tasered by the police.

Clare Nowland suffered a serious head injury from a fall, leading to her critical condition hospitalization. Unfortunately, she died on May 24 while still in the hospital. The civil lawsuit was filed on behalf of Mrs. Nowland and was scheduled for a pre-trial conference at Bega District Court. However, the conference has been adjourned until late August.

Last week, Senior Constable Kristian White, aged 33, appeared in court for the first time regarding the incident. He is facing charges of recklessly causing grievous bodily harm, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, and common assault. Cooma Local Court Magistrate Roger Clisdell expressed frustration with the prosecutors for allowing Mr. White to appear via video link without his knowledge during the court proceedings. Mrs. Nowland was a beloved member of the Cooma community and had a large family consisting of eight children, 24 grandchildren, and 31 great-grandchildren.
