Savannah Daisley accused of having sex with boy, 14, four times a day is ALLOWED to meet children
In a new twist to the case, Daisley, 45, has been handed new bail conditions
Savannah Daisley, the 45-year-old heiress from Sydney, was recently accused of having sex with a teenager. Daughter of the champion horse rider Ross Daisley, she runs her celebrity-endorsed detox brand called 'Smart Cleanse.' The news of her alleged child sex abuse surfaced earlier in July. She was accused of having drunken sex with a 14-year-old boy four times a day and faced the Waverley Local Court in Sydney on June 28.
Daisley was released on bail, on the condition of not having any contact with former partner James Wallis or any of the prosecution's witnesses. However, her bail conditions have now been relaxed. On Monday, Ms Daisley’s lawyer applied for her to be allowed to have supervised visits with children who cannot be identified for legal reasons. According to the Daily Telegraph "The application was not opposed by the prosecution and was granted by magistrate Robert Williams."

Initially, Judge Jaqueline Milledge denied granting her bail, citing the incident as quite disturbing. But her lawyer, Gabrielle Bashir, was persistent and presented her "deteriorating" mental health to plead for bail from Australia's toughest women's prison. Magistrate Viney said that many others think their mental health will get better once released. Eventually, she was granted bail but under strict conditions. Savannah had to surrender her passport and was not allowed to have any contact with the teen victim, her former partner, James Wallis, or any other witnesses. She was also instructed to stay with her parents and to report to Moss Vale police station.
Since then, Savannah was rarely spotted outdoors and has also deleted her Instagram page. The victim, the teen boy, of the incident revealed the acts to his mother in June, and within three weeks, Savannah was behind bars. Later, Savannah tried to silence the boy. Sergeant Kerry-Ann MicKinnon, the police prosecutor, told the Downing Local Court, "This wasn't a spontaneous act. There are some disclosures made about feelings prior to this. There are also apologies. She ... attempts to shift the blame. She suggests it was mutual ... and what the potential ramifications are going to be. She's guilt-tripping this child. Reminds the child of what the agreement was in respect of keeping it under wraps. Puts it in a kind of story-like, fairytale situation ... how it is going to go away and never come back." The call recording could not be released because of a suppression order, but Magistrate Alison Viney marked it as "a very disturbing telephone conversation."
Ms Daisley was released from jail on a A$100,000 surety and the condition she resides with her parents in the Southern Highlands. Her lawyer refuses to agree to the clause stating that her staying back will make her business lose millions of dollars and may even go bankrupt. He said, "She is the only one who can work on her new products and rebranding, A$300,000 will be lost immediately." "Her whole livelihood and savings would be lost if Smart Cleanse does not continue to trade. The family lives a very modest life," the defense barrister added.
