The mother of a mentally ill man who bashed his father has expressed her relief at a low non-parole term set by a South Australian court.
Wayne Dunstan, 37, pleaded guilty to assaulting his father John at Coober Pedy in 2012.
The District Court heard a plea from Dunstan's mother Yoka, who said her son's mental health had worsened while he was in Yatala jail's G-division in solitary confinement.
Judge Paul Rice set Dunstan a two-year non-parole term, but with time already served he will be eligible for parole in five months.
Ms Dunstan welcomed that outcome.
"What's happened is the best thing that could have happened to Wayne because I know he's going to get the treatment he needs and that he deserves," she said.






Mintabie resident recently visited her World Vision sponsor children in Kenya.


Veronica Hartnett has sponsored a number of children from Kenya for the last ten years. Recently Veronica travelled to Kenya to meet her three sponsor children - Leah, Loiremwa and Eva. When Veronica visited Leah and Loiremwa she was able to show where Australia is in relation to Kenya by drawing a map of the world in the dirt. The children were surprised at the long distance Veronica had travelled, just to visit them. Veronica's trip to meet Eva, Leah and Loiremwa was an extremely rewarding experience as it opened her eyes to the huge effect her sponsorship has on the children and their communities. Veronica believes Africa is where her heart is and that she will definitely return to visit her sponsor children again in the future. Veronica is keen to share her experience as a World Vision supporter with her local community to encourage others to sponsor a child.
