The man convicted of assaulting Danny Hodgson two years ago has been remanded in custody after facing two charges at the South Hedland Magistrates Court on Monday. The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, faced a charge of alleged robbery in Geraldton on August 29 and a charge of being a rioter causing damage by fire on May 9 and 10. The second charge alleges the man, aged 19, took part in the Banksia Hill Detention Centre riots in May which saw 26 youths, some of them aged just 13, face criminal charges. A special investigation into the carnage found the damage from the riot cost $30 million. Danny Hodgson was left fighting for his life after an unprovoked one-punch attack outside Perth train station in September 2021. The news of fresh charges come after the West Australian reported last week that Danny Hodgson’s father, Peter, was attempting to get permanent residency in Australia on compassionate ground to take care of his son. Mr Hodgson was told that the Home Affairs Department had initiated a ministerial intervention request on his case. Mr Hodgson works up to 60 hours a week to help with his son’s medical costs. His temporary visa expires in just over three weeks, meaning he may be forced to return to his native UK if he cannot get it extended. The man was sentenced to three years and eight months behind bars in March, 2022, for the attack on Danny Hodgson and was released in May of this year. The man will appear in the Perth Magistrates Court via video link on October 30.
