‘Deeply embarrassed’ woman ‘refused to provide police a sample of her saliva for a drug test because she had just given her boyfriend oral sex and didn’t know what he had taken’
- A woman denied she refused police drug test because she had just had oral sex
- Woman from NSW was pulled over for not displaying P-plates in July this year
- On Wednesday in court woman said she was ’embarrassed’ by police fact sheet
A female driver who refused to give a saliva sample after being pulled over said it was because she had recently given her boyfriend oral sex, police claimed in court.
The woman from Port Kembla, about two hours south of Sydney, was stopped because she was not displaying P-plates and driving an unroadworthy vehicle in July.
On Wednesday in court the woman denied police claims she refused to participate in the drug test because she had recently given her boyfriend oral sex because she didn’t ‘want to get done for anything he has been taking’.

Appearing at a sentencing hearing the woman’s defence lawyer, Paul Cramer, said his client was ‘deeply embarrassed’ to see the claims in the police fact sheets.
He said his client had refused to take the drug test because she had been convicted of a drug-driving offence in Wollongong court in November last year and believed she was ‘conned by the system.’
Mr Cramer sought leniency for his client saying that she was studying physics at university and on a limited income and was currently 18 weeks pregnant with her second child, according to the Illawarra Mercury.
The woman initially was given a roadside breath test for alcohol which returned a clear reading but she refused to give a roadside drug test because police claim that she told them it was ‘not in the Constitution’ and that officers were ‘picking on her’.
Magistrate Peter Thompson agreed to reduce the fines as a result of the woman’s financial situation and the embarrassment caused.
The woman was given three fines totalling $1200 and disqualified the woman from driving for six months.
