15 charges, 20 years old

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS COURT -

A 20-YEAR-OLD Bowen man fac­ing 15 crim­i­nal charges in Proser­pine Mag­is­trates Court on Mon­day has been placed on pro­ba­tion.

Ap­pear­ing via video link from in­side prison, the man pleaded guilty to all charges, in­clud­ing mul­ti­ple do­mes­tic vi­o­lence breaches, steal­ing and wil­ful dam­age.

In Au­gust 2016 he broke his do­mes­tic vi­o­lence or­der mul­ti­ple times in Emer­ald.

Af­ter be­ing ar­rested and re­leased on bail fol­low­ing one of the in­ci­dents he said he would “have a party in cel­e­bra­tion of her fu­neral”.

He also stole a tele­vi­sion and bi­cy­cle and failed to ap­pear in court a num­ber of times. He threat­ened to kill po­lice and on July 7, 2016 at 12.30am, when po­lice con­ducted a check at the watch-house af­ter he had been ar­rested, they saw he had placed a large amount of fae­ces on the floor and against the cell door.

On Fe­bru­ary 12 in Bowen he was pulled over on a moped about 6.05pm and po­lice dis­cov­ered he had never held a licence.

Mag­is­trate Si­mon Young de­scribed some of the acts as “dis­gust­ing” but also noted the man seemed to have a prob­lem with al­co­hol.

Hav­ing spent 93 days in cus­tody, he was placed on a 12-month pro­ba­tion or­der, dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for three months and fined $400.
