A man who assaulted his partner then hacked her Facebook account to try clearing his name has been released from prison after his appeal was granted. Peter John Vince (46) was sentenced to 22 months' imprisonment when he appeared before the Dunedin District Court in August. But that was overturned by the High Court after a successful appeal. A recently released judgement from Justice Gerald Nation had Vince's penalty converted to nine months' home detention. ``Mr Vince had trouble accepting that a woman he had been in a relationship with for some seven months wished to end that relationship,'' Justice Nation said.
