There has been a new twist in the trial of a glamorous Sydney heiress and health influencer accused of having sex with a 14-year-old.
A court has relaxed bail conditions imposed on a glamorous Sydney heiress accused of having sex with a 14-year-old.
Savannah Daisley allegedly had sex with the teenager four times and then attempted to “silence” them, according to court documents.
The 45-year-old is the daughter of champion horse breeder Ross Daisley and runs her own celebrity-endorsed detox business called Smart Cleanse.
Ms Daisley was charged in June with four counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a teenager and was remanded in Silverwater Women’s Correctional Centre after being refused bail.
Last week she was released on bail, with one of the conditions being she didn’t have any contact with former partner James Wallis or any of the prosecution’s witnesses.
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.
The application was not opposed by the prosecution and was granted by magistrate Robert Williams.
The Sydney heiress accused of having sex with a 14-year-old has had her bail conditions adjusted.
Ms Daisley has rarely been seen in public since being charged and deleted her Instagram page that had previously featured the influencer smiling and giving health advice.
Police allege she had sex with the 14-year-old four times over a 23-hour period in May 20, 2021.
Ms Daisley has indicated she intends to plead not guilty and denies the charges against her.
A court was told Ms Daisley was “highly intoxicated”at the time of the alleged offending and often “blacked out”.
Police prosecutors said they would present recordings of phone conversations in which Ms Daisley admits to some of the offences.
“From the phone call there certainly is inferences that can be drawn in respect of admissions, while they may not be outright admissions,” Police prosecutor Kerry-Ann McKinnon said at a hearing last week.

Sergeant McKinnon told the court that Ms Daisley had also tried to convince the 14-year-old to stay quiet about the incident in order to protect herself.
“She then goes on in an attempt to shift the blame. She suggests that it was mutual, she seeks reassurance from the child, she accepts what the potential ramifications are going to be,” the prosecutor said.
“Now she’s guilt tripping this child.”
Ms Daisley was released from jail on a $100,000 surety and the condition she resides with her parents in the Southern Highlands.
Her lawyer argued Ms Daisley’s business had suffered while she was in prison and if she were to stay there her company would lose millions of dollars and potentially go bust.
“She is the only one who can work on her new products and rebranding, $300,000 will be lost immediately,” defence barrister Gabrielle Bashir said.
“Her whole livelihood and savings would be lost if Smart Cleanse does not continue to trade. The family lives a very modest life.”
