Violent dad uploads wife's nude pictures on internet

ANGRY over his marriage breakdown, a Gladstone father stalked his wife, slashed her car tyres, and uploaded naked sexual photos of her to the internet.

The man, 39, went before Gladstone Magistrates Court in custody.

Police prosecutor Barry Stevens said the man made repeated harassing intrusions on his estranged wife by going to her workplace, then created an online Tumblr site in her name uploading explicit photos of her.

Sgt Stevens said the couple had children and were in a relationship for more than 10 years before separating last year.

The husband's domestic violence had previously landed him in custody.

Lawyer Jun Pepito said a medical report showed he had substance abuse and was possibly bipolar.

The man, a tradesman, pleaded guilty to three counts of contravening a domestic violence order in May, the offences aggravated.

At the time he was on parole for an eight-month jail sentence imposed for five previous breaches of a domestic violence order.

Incidents included slashing his wife's car tyres, assaulting her with a phone, and sending hundreds of text messages.

Magistrate Melanie Ho said it had been "insidious acts of domestic violence".

Ms Ho said just weeks after his previous sentence the man then began going to his wife's workplace.

His wife's employer told him to leave, he was aggressive and swore at her work colleagues, and his distraught wife had to be escorted from work.

Ms Ho said the man, who had first denied to police he had set up the Tumblr site with his wife's photos and calling her "a naughty s**t", had pleaded guilty.

She imposed jail terms of nine months and 12 months, and activated the prior eight-month suspended jail term to be served concurrently.

Taking into account time served, Ms Ho set his parole release date as October 2.
