Man pleads guilty to abusing his mum
A 32-year old man pleaded guilty in court to yelling and swearing at his mother.
The Ballogie man appeared in Murgon Magistrates Court on October 16, charged with contravening a domestic violence order.
The court heard his mother had been cleaning at around 7.30pm on September 16, when the defendant started yelling and swearing at the woman in her 70s.
Magistrate Louisa Pink told the defendant breaking things and being abusive would not solve problems.
"If you want to have the privilege of living with your mother, you have to show good behaviour," she said.
Magistrate Pink told him she did not want to see him in court again.
He was fined $300 and his convictions were not recorded.
