Football identity Jarrah Maksymow's hopes of getting out of jail early have been dashed in the District Court.
Maksymow had lodged a severity appeal over two charges of contravention of an apprehended domestic violence order and an intimidation charge.
But the appeal was dismissed when it was put before Judge Sean Grant in Albury this week.
IN OTHER NEWS:
Maksymow was handed an 18-month jail term in January for what Albury Local Court magistrate Richard Funston described as "terrifying" behaviour towards his former partner.
The breaches included a telephone call in which he threatened her with murder if she called police.
Maksymow had pleaded guilty to the charges.
Mr Funston set a lengthy period on parole for Maksymow, who after serving nine months - he has been in custody since December - will be released on August 31.
He failed in a bid, via a submission from his lawyer, to be placed instead on an intensive corrections order.
That led to the appeal to the District Court, but Judge Grant too found that had no merit, resulting in the dismissal.
Mr Funston was scathing of Maksymow's behaviour when handing down his sentence, being especially critical of his repeat offending directed towards the victim.
"How many times does he have to be told that he can't be harassing and assaulting the previous partner?
"It would have been absolutely terrifying for the victim."
The court heard how a week after the telephone threat, Maksymow turned up at her Springdale Heights home.
He let himself in, supposedly with the intention of putting up a Christmas tree with their five-year-old son.
The victim fled the house and contacted her mother.
