Breach of trust

Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

THE last thing a Hamil­ton Is­land woman ex­pected to see on her phone was a pic­ture of her breasts sent to the num­ber of the man who fixed her phone.

On June 17, Den­nis James Ma­her, 42, asked the woman for her pin­code for the pur­poses of fix­ing her phone but was given no per­mis­sion to ac­cess text mes­sages or im­ages..

Pros­e­cu­tor Bern­hard Berger said the vic­tim was about to send a text mes­sage to Ma­her about fix­ing the phone when she no­ticed the ex­plicit im­age in her mes­sage his­tory and alerted po­lice.

Lawyer Cleo Re­wald said while the ev­i­dence was clear, Ma­her had no idea how it hap­pened and claimed the mes­sage had not been re­ceived.

Ma­her plead guilty to dis­tribut­ing pro­hib­ited visual record­ings and was slapped

with a six-month $800 Good Be­hav­iour Bond.
