Tasmanian Supreme Court judge, Gregory Peter Geason, is set to defend himself in a NSW court over accusations of violating an apprehended violence order. The judge, aged 62, allegedly breached the order three times in November while in Sydney. Furthermore, he has pleaded not guilty to charges of emotional abuse and common assault against an unnamed woman.

This legal ordeal marks a significant event, as Geason is the first Tasmanian judge in two centuries to be confronted with criminal charges. Despite being appointed to the Tasmanian Supreme Court in 2017 after almost 40 years of legal practice, he now finds himself entangled in a complex legal battle that has led to him being granted bail with strict conditions restricting his judicial powers until the case is resolved.

The upcoming hearing in NSW, scheduled for February next year, will shed further light on these allegations and determine the path forward for Justice Geason. It is a rare and troubling situation, highlighting the complexities and challenges faced by individuals in positions of authority when confronted with legal issues.
