One false step costs

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

ONE wrong move has seen one Moss­man man cop $3600 in fines af­ter breach­ing his bail con­di­tions and be­ing caught in pos­ses­sion of a bong.

Zeke Dow­dle failed to at­tend the Moss­man Po­lice Sta­tion on Oc­to­ber 9 as part of his pa­role con­di­tions and when po­lice went to speak with him, they dis­cov­ered him in pos­ses­sion of a bong and sub­se­quently charged him on Oc­to­ber 16 for both charges.

Mag­is­trate Braes told Dow­dle his had come within a “hairs breath away from prison” and if there was an­other of­fence there would be a “bed wait­ing for you (Mr Dow­dle) at Lo­tus Glen”.

Dow­dle re­ceived a $300 fine for breach­ing bail con­di­tions, $300 for pos­ses­sion of a uten­sil, $500 for breach­ing two counts of a community ser­vice or­der for fail­ing to do his community ser­vice and $2500 for sev­eral pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions.
