Woman abused in front of daughter
A WOMAN abused her cousin and accused her of being a drug dealer in front of a school bus the victim’s daughter was boarding, a court was told.
Yolanda Collette Eggmolesse, 34, of Bundaberg, yesterday pleaded guilty in Bundaberg Magistrates Court to one charge of public nuisance.
Police prosecutor Sergeant Barry Stevens said the victim of the verbal attack was on the footpath watching her young daughter get on the school bus when the defendant arrived in her vehicle and began abusing the woman.
Sgt Stevens said Eggmolesse was running down the victim’s character and calling her a drug dealer.
Defence lawyer Yolande Dubow said her client had concerns “in relation to the conduct of the (victim)”.
Magistrate Jennifer Batts noted Eggmolesse’s lack of history and placed her on a $150 recognisance for three months.
