Tit for tat means fine to pay back

AARON Martin Kelly said he pulled the security screens off his ex-girlfriend’s doors only after she did it to his house first.

That is what he told the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court when he pleaded guilty to one count of wilful damage.

On September 28 last year, when Kelly went to the Torquay home and argued with his ex he also punched holes in the security screens with his keys, the court was told.

Kelly admitted he’d acted “immaturely” but said he’d previously complained to police about the woman, who he said “harassed (him) incessantly” after they broke up.

But, he said, the police had “mocked” him and refused to take the complaints seriously.

Kelly was fined $500 for the incident and ordered to pay $346.50 restitution for the damage to the house.
