Like Father, Like Son:
THE son of Rodney Clavell has blamed his fugitive father’s influence for a steroid-fuelled spree of driving, drug and assault offences â€” but says he will rehabilitate by turning to Islam.
The Adelaide Magistrates Court today branded Daniel Joel Clavell “belligerent and defiant” as it sentenced him for a series of offences committed between August 2013 and January this year.
Clavell repeatedly drove without a licence, had steroids in his possession, assaulted a man in his 60s without provocation and intimidated another by “baring his teeth like a dog”.
But defence lawyer Nikki Conley said the criminal acts of her client â€” who smirked, yawned and tapped his fingers throughout the hearing â€” could be traced back to his infamous father.
