Mr Price said French had asked for more time to seek legal advice. He adjourned the case to June 5 at Belmont Local Court.
French claimed she was recovering after a recent stint in hospital to treat a leg infection, court documents reveal.
French’s alleged sex partner on the bus, 23-year-old Ryan Jones, has denied the six charges he faces over the incident.
Detectives allege Jones and French, both from Windale, had sex on the bus as it travelled between Charlestown and Warners Bay at Lake Macquarie on a Friday morning in late March.
Jones, who had been on parole at the time but is now in custody, allegedly spat at the driver who ordered the couple to stop having sex and booted them off his bus.
The unemployed and homeless man is charged with assault, behaving in an offensive manner in a public place, travelling on the bus without a valid ticket, intentionally or recklessly damaging property, affray and stalking.
He has pleaded not guilty and is due to appear in Newcastle Local Court on May 23.
Court documents state Jones spat on the bus’s Opal card reader and the driver’s partition before threatening two men – causing them to fear for their safety.
The bus had to be removed from service to be professionally cleaned.
