A man who breached three separate suspended sentences will spend at least six months in jail.
Sammual Clinton Wilmot was sentenced in Launceston Magistrates Court on Monday.
Appearing via video-link from Hobart Reception Prison, the 27-year-old was facing the activation of a six-week sentence, a three-month suspended sentence and a five-month suspended sentence.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Last week defence counsel Olivia Jenkins argued it would be unjust to activate all three sentences, with no indication of when a Supreme Court trial would be held.
Wilmot has pleaded not guilty to causing grievous bodily harm at Waverley in January 2018 and was on bail until he was arrested on April 23.
Police prosecutor Mike Bonde said it was a serious assault and that his continued bail breaches were a contempt of the court and the court processes.
Last week Magistrate Sharon Cure gave a sentencing indication that Wilmot would spend at least six months in jail.
In court on Monday she agreed it would be unjust to activate the six-week sentence, dating back to a suspended sentence breach from 2017.
However, she found the other two suspended sentences ought to be restored, along with new charges including common assault and 30 breach of bail conditions.
The court previously heard that during a bail check on November 17, Wilmot was seen riding a bicycle before running off - leading to a police chase.
Ms Cure sentenced Wilmot to 12 months' jail, suspended for six months.
She said she was of the view that Wilmot was someone who was "not beyond" rehabilitation, but he needed to be motivated.
Wilmot was ordered to pay $120 in court levees.
