Man fined for shacking up with ex’s 19yo daughter
A Southern Downs man told police he was "unaware" a relationship with his ex-partner's 19-year-old daughter breached a protection order taken out against him.
In November last year, police officers found he and the woman's daughter had lived together for months.
The protection order was enforced in May 2019 after the man's ex-partner and her daughter alleged an assault had taken place in their home.
The man, who cannot be name for legal reasons, was subsequently banned from contacting either of the women.
Warwick Police prosecutor Ken Wiggan told the court the man claimed he was "unaware" the relationship breached the domestic violence order, as he "didn't read it properly" when he first received it.
The protection order has since been changed to allow for the relationship.
The man pleaded guilty to contravening a domestic violence order.
He was fined $350 and his conviction was recorded.
