Prison Governor Tracey Mannix is about to be deposited after being convicted of a common attack
A prison governor is about to be deposited after being convicted of frequent violence for taking a prisoner by the neck.
Dawn de Loas Correctional Center Prison Governor Tracey Margaret Mannix claimed that she only acted in self-defense when she grabbed the prisoner by the neck and pushed him into a wall against a wall in April 2018.
Mannix cried when she was sentenced to a 12-month community promotion with a conviction recorded in the Burwood Local Court on Friday, The Daily Telegraph reported.
She appeals against the verdict, but is confronted with the end of her career if this fails.
The court heard how Mannix and three other senior officers had to take care of the 515 prisoners in April 2018 while industrial strikes were moving.
Prisoners were held in their cells and visiting hours were delayed to allow the short manned guards to monitor prisoners.
However, when some of the prisoners were released from their cells to help deliver meals, the court heard.

Convicted fraudster Adam Riley was one of those prisoners and was told not to talk to other prisoners during the rounds.
The court heard after Riley was twice reprimanded for speaking, Mannix approached him.
She said Riley approached her with an outstretched arm that made her feel threatened and grabbed him by the neck.
& # 39; Friend, you need to calm down, just do what you are told, & # 39; she said, taking his neck.
CCTV shown to the court explained the common attack on video. Riley was not injured in the incident.
Defense lawyer Stephen Russell argued against taking a conviction against his client because this would jeopardize her long career in corrections.
Despite the self-defense argument, the court convicted Mannix of a common attack and registered the sentence.
