A man has been convicted for trespassing on a sheep station east of Roebourne.

Wesley Carey appeared in Karratha Courthouse last week where he pleaded guilty to one charge of trespassing on a place without lawful excuse.

On Sunday, November 15 last year, Mr Carey and several other people allegedly drove on Sherlock Station after being told by the station manager they were not allowed to enter.

The group went fishing on the station grounds until the manager called police.

No damage was done to the property.

Magistrate Richard Huston fined Mr Carey $500 and granted a spent conviction.

He told Mr Carey trespass was a serious offence and can be sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.
