A Sydney crypto millionaire confessed to having a cocktail of ice and tequila, prompting him to send a barrage of “insulting and violent” messages to his ex-girlfriend, threatening to shoot and kill her. decapitate.
Andrew Liam Parry appeared before the NSW District Court on Wednesday to appeal his six-month sentence after pleading guilty to charges of harassment and violating a pending domestic violence warrant.
The 37-year-old wannabe rich-lister was in court in May this year when his ex-girlfriend issued a warrant for domestic violence, forbidding him to contact her or go near her.
On Wednesday, however, the court was told what harrowing ordeal the woman had to endure when he sent her a series of abusive messages while drinking a “cocktail of ice and tequila.”
According to court documents, Parry, the man behind BTC Mine Australia, sent his ex a story that he was arguing.
He followed it up with multiple lyrics that Judge Deborah Sweeney described as terrible and scared the victim.
“If I’m not here to protect you, you’ll get shot,” one of the text messages read.
The woman told police she was too scared to leave her apartment, but a month later Parry started another attack.
The 37-year-old told court on Wednesday there was no excuse for the messages he sent, but claimed his ex-girlfriend “tried” to turn him on while he was “down a bottle of tequila and on drugs.” .
Using the Snapchat handle “Apatrone22”, Parry sent videos to the woman on July 7 showing how to break into houses and cars in less than two minutes.
“Call me or I’ll be waiting at your apartment when you get back,” one of the messages read.
Two days later, Parry launched the “violent” outburst in which he said the woman was “fucked with the wrong c**t”.
One message read: “The worst thing you can do is call the police, but I’m going up to them and if they shoot me, I don’t give a f**k”.
“I’ll relax later after I behead you and (have) been shot by the dogs,” said another.
“I’m bringing a hackneyed (and) ride to Sydney…bring all the (f*****g) Leb rats and I’ll shoot every motherfucker in the head, including the c*** at the front desk.”
The eruption lasted from 12:46 a.m. to 8:09 a.m. on July 10, with the woman awoken by her dog’s barking less than an hour later.
The court was told she heard the voice of her ex-boyfriend greeting the dog and going through her handbag.
She called the police before telling Parry to leave and snatching her key from his hand.
Hours later, Parry was arrested by the police. He was sentenced in the local court to six months behind bars.
Parry, who is listed in court documents as an “entrepreneur” making $1.2 million a year, went to the gallery and said he was “extremely embarrassed” by what he had said and blamed his drunkenness.
“Normally, when I’m sober, it doesn’t matter what people say; I’m not reacting, but I was in a hyper-reactive frame of mind,” he said.
“Obviously I wasn’t in the right frame of mind at the time.”
The 37-year-old told the court he was “hurt” by his ex, “went out of control” and was fueled by drugs and alcohol.
“At the time, I was just trying to respond to what she said to me and (I) hurt her emotionally too,” he said.
The court was told that Parry had “self-medicated” his suspected ADHD with meth, which made him feel “normal”.
He said that “taking ice cream” given his condition “doesn’t really make him crazy”.
“I am willing to stop self-medicating as it has led to me being here… Do I deserve it? Yes. Will I ever be here again? Absolutely not,” Parry told the court.
Defense attorney Mario Licha told the court he “doesn’t know” how his client was sentenced to prison after pleading guilty in the local court after no warrant was ordered.
He argued that Parry was able to finish his sentence in the community while he sought rehabilitation for his drug and alcohol problems.
However, Judge Sweeney reprimanded Parry for entering the woman’s apartment in the first place, as he had “a clear order” not to approach her.
“Why do we insist on victim blaming? Why is it all her fault?” the judge wondered.
“He had an order not to approach or contact her in any way; what is so hard about that to understand?”
Judge Sweeney told the court that Parry showed a “lack of understanding” in his offense as he continued to blame the victim and show no remorse.
She admitted he was “ashamed and embarrassed” for his behavior and endured a difficult time in custody.
Judge Sweeney allowed the appeal and ordered Parry to serve an Intensive Corrections Order in the community for eight months while staying away from drugs and alcohol and attending counseling programs.
