A mother in Brisbane, who felt so much pressure to keep up with other football mothers that she had committed fraud and forgery, is confronted with deportation after the prison sentence.

New Zealand citizen Hunter Louise Lehauli, 38, admitted that 19 dishonesty crimes had been committed over a five-month period in 2018, including hiring hotel rooms during football tournaments but not paying for them.

The five-year-old mother cried at the dock when she was sentenced to four years and three months in the Brisbane court on Monday.

After 14 months, she is eligible for conditional release, which can lead to her deportation on the basis of changes to section 501 of the Migration Act in 2014.
