A 36-YEAR-OLD man convicted of secretly recording his former de facto partner's young daughter while she showered has escaped further time behind bars despite breaching the conditions of his suspended sentence.
The man, who cannot be named to protect the girl, spent eight months of a two-and-a-half year jail sentence behind bars after pleading guilty to four counts of producing child exploitation material on November 26, 2014.
The girl was aged 12-13 when the man used his phone to record her in the bathroom.
In the Bundaberg District Court on Tuesday the man pleaded guilty to 19 offences of breaching his suspended sentence.
The breaches included failing to inform the police about his address, a new tattoo, a car he had driven and contact he'd had with three children.
Judge Michael Shanahan determined given the nature of the breaches it would be unjust to activate part or all of the suspended sentence and instead extended the operational period by eight months to January 2018.
