Man tasered twice before throwing scissors at police officer

A VIOLENT rampage was so extreme, Magistrate Simon Young said he could not dish out a harsh enough penalty.

Magistrates can order a maximum sentence of three years imprisonment and Mr Young said he believed the defendant "deserved something far in excess of that".

The man, whom we have not named to protect the victim's identity, pleaded guilty at Murgon Magistrates Court on Tuesday to multiple assault charges after a domestic violence incident.

But he will have to wait until Kingaroy District Court sittings in September to find out how long he will spend behind bars.

Mr Young said the maximum sentence for breaking into a home and using violence was "life imprisonment".

The court heard the man had broken into the home of a woman and her four children on July 25, where he viciously assaulted her.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Wayne Bushell said the pregnant woman was kicked in the head and stomach multiple times while she lay on the ground.

"(He) kicked her so many times that she could not control her bladder and had urinated uncontrollably," Sgt Bushell said.

"Due to the significant head trauma she suffered she had to be transferred out to the Royal Brisbane Hospital."

When police attended the crime scene and attempted to escort the man away he pulled out steel scissors.

The court heard a taser was used twice on the man but he still threw the scissors at a police officer.
