In custody after bail breached

A YOUNG woman was remanded in custody on Monday after being given new bail on Saturday morning for breaching her existing bail.

Elizabeth Marie Burns, 20, was back in custody after breaching her release conditions a few hours after being released on Saturday.

Burns is due to reappear in Gympie Magistrates Court on February 22 to answer a breach of release conditions, obstructing a police officer and breaching a bail condition on February 18.

Police prosecutor Senior Constable Lisa Manns opposed bail, saying Burns was in a "show cause" position after breaching bail a few hours after it was granted.

Legal representative for Burns, Greg Scott said his client understood the release condition meant she need only be with her mother between 5pm and 6am.

"I cannot accept that she did not understand that - being the one who told her. The risk of re-offending is falling on somewhat fertile soil. I cannot think of any other way (other than being held in custody)," Magistrate Maxine Baldwin said.
