The young father has been held in custody close to a month after breaking bail conditions.
Mark Short, making the bail application, provided a letter from Teava’s grandfather who said he wanted to see his grandson change his life.
Short said Teava would be
residing with his grandfather and working with him on the farm. “His family is giving him a chance; he needs to prove himself. We have had a good discussion that if he breaches bail; they (family) need to wake up to reality that he needs rehabilitation.”
Short said based on the charges, Teava would be doing time in prison. Teava has admitted four counts of burglary, five counts of contempt of court where he once escaped from police custody, and a charge of intent to injure and refusing a breath test.
