Matthew Newton case betrays both women and men

In Looking for Alibrandi, playing John Barton, the gifted schoolboy who wins Josie Alibrandi's heart but dies young, Matthew Newton showed his brilliance as an actor. In pleading guilty to assaulting his former live-in partner Brooke Satchwell, Newton showed contrition and acceptance of fault for offending against her and the law. In appealing against his conviction and 12-month good behaviour bond, he exercised his right to have the sentence imposed by the Local Court revisited in the District Court.
