The court heard that Ms Taylor had several pages of criminal history and a two-page traffic history, with the police prosecutor saying that she had a “blatant disregard” for court orders.
Upon leaving court today, Ms Taylor said she was planning to “get on with my life and enjoy my family”.
“Eighteen months ago I was arrested and charged for a crime I did not commit.”
Ms Taylor’s lawyer Michael Gatenby asked the court to convict his client, but not to further punish her due to 200 days already spent in custody before today’s sentence.
“The rest of the offending is fairly low level,” Mr Gatenby said.
“Without all the orders of bail over her head, she probably just can get on with her life.”
Ms Taylor was convicted and not further punished.
In sentencing, Magistrate Steve Courtney said Miss Taylor’s story was “a sad one” and wished her good luck.
9News understands that Miss Taylor has an offer from a friend to move in and an offer of employment in a dress shop moving forward.
