A Numurkah woman caught with cannabis in her bra traded the drug without realising she was trafficking, a court has heard.RIAHN SMITH April 11, 2014 5:16am
Chantal Deanne Dailey, 29, pleaded guilty at Shepparton Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday to possessing, using and trafficking cannabis.
Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Kim Talbot told the court police from Numurkah, Nathalia, Cobram and Wangaratta raided her Meiklejohn St home on July 25 last year and found a foil containing 7
Leading Sen Const Talbot said a ziplock bag of green vegetable matter, believed to be cannabis, was also produced from Dailey’s bra.
She said an analysis of the woman’s iPhone identified evidence of drug trafficking.
The court heard the woman admitted to using cannabis to deal with anxiety.
Lawyer Ian Michaelson told the court his client did not sell cannabis, but was consistently pestered into loaning small quantities of the drug to friends of her partner.
He said because Dailey could not afford to give the drugs away, the loans were repaid in cannabis.
Mr Michaelson said while ignorance of the law was no defence, his client did not realise her actions constituted trafficking.
He said Dailey had a limited prior history of offending and was remorseful for her actions.
He also told the court the mother-of-two was several months pregnant and had stopped smoking cannabis.
Magistrate John Murphy told Dailey he was suspicious of her explanation of the offending and said a lengthy good behaviour bond would hopefully keep her on the right track.
Mr Murphy fined her $200 for possessing cannabis and imposed a good behaviour bond until mid-2017.
