Simon Gordon Kelly, 42, charged over breaching 12-month community based order

A 42-year-old Collie man breached the requirements of his Community Based Order on multiple occasions last year.

Simon Gordon Kelly, 42, attended Collie Magistrates Court on Wednesday, April 10, charged with three counts of breaching a conditional release order/community order without a reasonable excuse.

The court heard Kelly was given a 12-month Community Based Order on June 11, 2018.

The 42-year-old received a warning notice after failing to report on September 5, 2018.

Kelly tested positive for cannabis on multiple occasions.

In November 2018, he tested positive for both cannabis and methamphetamine.

He then failed to attend a substance abuse counselling session on December 11, 2018.

The defence said Kelly had completed 40 hours of community service and had "substantially complied" with his orders.

Magistrate David Maclean reminded Kelly about the dangers of illicit substances.

"It's hard to manage your emotions when you continue to use meth...frustrations build up and people explode," Mr Maclean said. Mr Maclean called for the Community Based Order to continue.
