Father of 14 told to stop having kids

Geraldton Guardian

A Geraldton magistrate has asked a 42-year-old man to stop having children.

The man was convicted in Geraldton Magistrate’s Court recently of breaching bail in Perth and failing to obey an order given by an officer in Northbridge.

Magistrate Donna Webb sentenced the man, who is awaiting the birth of his 15th child any day, to 30 hours of community service.

“You’re going to have your hands full,” she said.“I think it’s time to stop. You can ensure the spreading of your genetic material. It’s time for you to be the best dad you can be.”

The man will have six months to complete the community service.
