A MAN has claimed he was simply ‘dreaming of what he couldn’t have’ when a Baldivis resident found him looking into her windows one morning.

Jason Davis was convicted in his absence of trespass at Rockingham Magistrates Court on December 1.

His co-accused, Rebecca Cox, was convicted earlier of trespass and fined $750 at Rockingham Magistrates Court on October 23.

The prosecutor said Davis and Cox were in a white Ford Territory which they parked near to a Baldivis home on September 21 at 10.51am.

The pair walked down the side path of a home where they looked in the windows of the home before a woman inside the house saw them and called police.

Cox returned to the car and sat in the passenger seat.

Police found the car with Cox in it before Davis returned, where he was questioned by police.

The court heard he told police “we were looking at new homes and dreaming of what we can’t have”.

Magistrate Leanne Atkins said she did not accept Davis’ reason for being on the property.

“I’ve heard the reason and I do not accept it. It must have given the home owner significant cause for concern,” she said.

She fined him $800.
