Magistrate refuses bail in break-in court case

A MAN accused of breaking into a home will remain in custody after a magistrate refused to grant him bail on Thursday.

Phillip Michael Daveson applied for bail in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court but his lengthy criminal history counted against him.

Police prosecutor Senior Constable Jeanette Grigoris objected to Daveson's application.

She said Daveson had accumulated three pages of criminal history by the time he was 20, and he allegedly committed his last offence while on parole for similar charges.

Snr Const Grigoris said there was too high a risk of Daveson reoffending for bail to be granted.

Daveson's legal representative accepted that "his history is against him".

Daveson was going to contest the most recent charge, the court heard.

Magistrate Graham Hillan said the fact Daveson was alleged to have committed a crime while on parole was a major concern.

Mr Hillan refused bail and adjourned the case to a later date.
