Eggmolesse appeared in Maroochydore court on Wednesday, pleading guilty to domestic violence.
During the hearing, prosecutor Will Slack pleaded for two and a half years’ imprisonment.

Defense attorney Nathan Turner argued that his client was of “good character.”

He said the “insult took place against a background of a toxic relationship” that was accompanied by domestic violence.
Mr. Turner said that Eggmolesse had changed her life since the altercation, and that she was offering her son a stable home.
He asked for a mild sentence and to avoid a conviction to enable his client to pursue a career internationally.
Judge Glen Cash said the situation was “very unusual.”
“It seems to be a product of the dysfunctional relationship between you and the complainant.
“I therefore consider it unlikely behavior that you would repeat.”
He sentenced her to 18 months’ imprisonment, which was immediately suspended for two years.
