Mandylee Knight, 45, was charged with possession of a category M weapon, and pleaded guilty in Gympie Magistrates Court on Monday.
The court heard the mother-of-five was charged on February 18, when she tried to enter the Brisbane Supreme Court and security screenings picked up on the object in her jacket pocket.
The item was revealed to be a knuckleduster and Knight was detained by security until police arrived to question her.
Police observed that the knuckleduster looked homemade, and Knight said she had confiscated it off her grown up son, and forgot it was in the pocket of that jacket.
Knight said she was sorry that she had not disposed of it.
Magistrate Chris Callaghan fined her $100.
