30-y-o Toowoomba mum racked up 12 pages of criminal history

A TOOWOOMBA mum with 12 pages of criminal history will remain in jail despite being given a parole eligibility date as of Friday after pleading guilty to her latest offending.

Emily Mary Currey, 30, has a full-time release date of April 29, 2022, on previous matters, Toowoomba Magistrates Court heard.

She appeared via video from the Southern Queensland Correctional Centre to plead guilty to being a passenger in a stolen vehicle in Toowoomba on December 29, last year, and to stealing a handbag and shirt and having four syringes she had failed to properly disposed of when picked up by police that day.

Her solicitor Brad Skuse said his client had been back in custody since New Year’s Day.

His client was single but had a child who was living with Currey’s mother, he said.

Magistrate Howard Osborne sentenced her to six months in jail with an immediate parole eligibility.
