BEN­JAMIN Kody McCle­ments was brought to the Proser­pine Mag­is­trate’s Court in cus­tody on Mon­day morn­ing hav­ing breached his bail con­di­tions seven times since July 10.

The 29-year-old was given con­di­tions to re­port to a de- sig­nated po­lice sta­tion on July 8 but po­lice pros­e­cu­tor El­iz­a­beth Smith told the court that he had failed to at­tend on July 10, 13, 15, 17, 20, 22 and 24.

McCle­ments was lo­cated at 10.10am on Mon­day and ar­rested, be­fore be­ing brought be­fore the court.

Duty lawyer Sher­rie Meade said McCle­ments “didn’t re­alise his con­di­tions were to re­port more than once a week”.

“When he re­alised that he failed to at­tend once he didn’t want to get ar­rested,” she added.

He was fined $200.
