Mother of seven jailed

In Rockingham Magistrates Court on Tuesday, Joanne Dayana Gordon-Stables (44) was convicted on two counts of possessing a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply, two counts of possessing a prohibited weapon and possessing drug paraphernalia.

She was also convicted for carrying an article with intent to cause fear and driving under suspension.

The court was told police searched a home in Port Kennedy on October 4 and found Gordon-Stables with three bags of drugs, including about 2g of methamphetamine and 64g of cannabis.

Police also found pepper spray and an electronic shock device.

Gordon-Stables, a mother of seven, was on a suspended eight-month imprisonment term.

Police prosecutor Brian Sutherland said Gordon-Stables ‘keeps offending’.

‘There is no further deterrent left for her,’ he said.

Magistrate Stephen Wilson said there was no reason he should not activate the suspended term of imprisonment.
