Expensive night for teenager who slept in stranger's car

ROCKHAMPTON'S Alexandra Jane Lasker should have just called a taxi and gone home instead of sleeping in the back of a stranger's car after a party.

Lasker, 18, appeared in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday where she pleaded guilty to one charge of entering a vehicle without consent.

Prosecutor Danita Clarke said police were called to a Donovan Crescent address at 5am on December 30.

"A resident found his car had been broken into and there were belongings in his car," Ms Clarke said.

"He told police he thought he might have left his car unlocked the night before, but had found a leather jacket and iPhone in the car that belonged to Lasker."

Defence lawyer Mitchell Jamieson told the court Lasker was highly intoxicated at the time of the offence and was sorry for her actions.

Lasker was fined $300 and ordered to pay $440 restitution for damages to the back seat of the car.
