Alcoholic custodial dad with extensive DUI history avoids jail--because he's a custodial dad to 3-year-old daughter (Queensland, Australia)

Who says daddies are discriminated against? On the contrary, they are coddled again and again.

What a sweet deal for custodial dad MARK DANIEL TANTHEM. F*** up all you want, because you will never lose custody and never be held accountable. Ignore every court order that was ever issued and drive drunk and unlicensed as much as you like. No jail ever!

What happened to this little girl's mother? Total silence as usual.


Child is the only reason single parent is not behind bars

A THREE-year-old girl is the only reason a repeat offender isn't behind bars.

Mark Daniel Tathem, 27, yesterday pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified by a court order.

Tathem was intercepted by police at the Blacksoil Caltex on the Warrego Hwy, where he was driving an intoxicated friend home.

The court heard Tathem, a single father of a three-year-old daughter, has an extensive history of driving while unlicensed and disqualified.

Magistrate Michael Quinn said Tathem had a "terrible history of disregarding orders of the court".

"He's had so many chances, why should the court give him any more," he said.

"You seem to have breached every order given to you.

"The only thing saving you from actual jail time is the three-year-old."

Tathem was disqualified for two years and given a four-month suspended jail sentence.
