MAGISTRATE Simon Young told a Proserpine man he could lose joint custody of his kids if he continued to breach a domestic violence protection order.
Prosecutor Bernhard Berger said on May 20 and July 8, the man sent his former partner abusive text messages.
Mr Young said while no physical violence was shown, the man had a “contemptual”
attitude toward his former partner which was a “form of controlling behaviour”.
He was fined $1000.
