A Colac man has served almost two months in jail after he terrorised his former partner while there was an intervention order against him.

The man faced Colac Magistrate’s Court earlier this week after contravening an intervention order that included his former partner and their 6-year-old daughter and a personal safety order including another man.

His offences included making death threats and threatening to burn down a house.

The man had spent 54 days in jail on Monday after the offences.

He also faced drug driving charges.

A magistrate ordered a full intervention order against the man on May 26 this year which includes a no-contact condition.

The man and his partner didn’t have family law orders in place and the man was unable to visit his daughter.

He contacted the woman via voice mail and text messages more than 10 times on June 6 and on several occasions again on June 14.

The man also sent a Snapchat photo of a shotgun to the woman and shared intimate details about the victim on Facebook.

He also threatened to burn the victim’s house down.

The man was also facing charges after contravening a personal safety order when he threatened the affected person.

The offender sent the victim threats via text message and voice mail on multiple days in March and the threats included “I’m going to find you and going to cut you up piece by piece” and “I’m going to kill you right in front of your mother and father”.
