Why was he fined?
This man is listed on the Child Protection Offender Register and as part of his conditions, must tell Police within 14 days if he joins a social networking site online.
Although the original offence which put him on the register was not made available in Court, the male is currently serving a requirement to report to Police for a total of 15 years after being convicted of a child sex crime.
He has since pleaded guilty to the offence and was fined $500.
