Mother's honesty on drugs leads her to court

A WOMAN who decided honesty was the best policy when dealing with police investigating the alleged sexual assault of her daughter ended up in court.

They asked the former Sunshine Coast businesswoman, who cannot be named to protect her daughter, whether there were drugs involved in the alleged attack.

She told them the only thing she knew about drugs was that in January 2015 she gave a small plastic bag with a tiny amount of "speed" in it to the alleged assailant.

On Thursday, Brisbane District Court Judge David Reid accepted the woman's guilty plea and placed her on a 12-month $500 bond.

Judge Reid did not record a conviction for the charge of supplying a dangerous drug.

It was the 53-year-old's only run-in with the law.

"It is one of the most minor examples of this type of offence," defence lawyer Donald MacKenzie said.

He said his client was given the "remnants of a small bag of speed" at a party and she in turn handed it to the man who allegedly went on to attack her daughter.

"We don't know if it was speed," Mr MacKenzie said.
