Man ordered to pay $10,000 after torching partner's things
A MAN has been ordered to more than $10,000 in restitution and compensation after destroying his former partner's belongings.
Bradley Adams torched his partner's belongings, including photographs, at their Bororen home after she broke off their relationship.
The bridesmaid dress she had worn to her brother's wedding was also destroyed.
Magistrate Mark Morrow ordered Adams to pay $9742.92 in restitution and a further $1000 compensation, after Adams pleaded guilty to charges.
Defence lawyer Brad Krebs said his client suffered from major depression and had been drunk at the time.
Mr Krebs said Adams had been upset because he had just found out his ex was in a new relationship.
He said the process technician was remorseful and apologised for his behaviour.
