Breach of trust
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.
