Fresh arrest warrant as Suzi Taylor fails to show again
A fresh arrest warrant has been issued for former reality TV star Suzi Taylor, who is facing 103 charges, including extortion.
Twenty charges were listed for sentence in Brisbane's Roma Street Magistrates Court, on Tuesday, but Taylor, a former contestant on The Block and a former Penthouse pet, did not appear.
Taylor also had a fresh breach of bail charge listed in Brisbane Magistrates Court today, but she also did not appear there.
A Supreme Court judge ordered an arrest warrant be issued for Taylor on January 29, after the Crown applied to revoke her bail.
Police have been unable to locate her since.
Nathan Hounsell appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court today, as town agent for Taylor's lawyers, Gatenby Lawyers, and asked for the sentences to be adjourned.
Mr Hounsell said he was told the lawyers were seeking a mental health report for Taylor.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Duncan Erskine asked for a warrant to be issued on all matters before the court.
After Taylor did not respond to her name being called, Magistrate Janelle Brassington ordered a warrant be issued for her arrest as she had failed to appear to surrender into custody.
She said Taylor's bail undertaking was forfeited.
Before the Supreme Court arrest warrant was issued on January 29, the court was told Taylor had allegedly breached bail conditions, by failing to charge a GPS tracking device and failing to comply with residential and reporting conditions.
Police had also previously issued a warrant for Taylor's arrest regarding seven new alleged breach of bail charges.
Taylor has been committed to stand trial in April on charges of extortion to gain benefit, deprivation of liberty, assault occasioning bodily harm and drug possession.
She also is charged with falsely representing herself as a fictitious person and fraud.
The charges relate to allegations that Taylor kicked and punched a man to steal money, after meeting him on a hook-up app.
