Jordan Finlayson: Beauty and the Geek star, 32, admits driving on meth as court heard she had ‘no remorse and no respect for authority’
- Jordan Finlayson is on parole for prior drug offenses
- Police say she has ‘a long history of drug use’
A troubled former reality star and ex-NRL cheerleader has ‘no remorse and no respect for authority’ as she has been hit with two new charges, police say in documents handed over to court.
Jordan Finlayson did not appear in Sydney Downing Center Local Court on Tuesday, where his lawyer pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of drugs.
Court documents revealed the former Beauty and the Geek star was on parole until September for previous drug offences.
“The defendant has a long history of drug use and violent domestic violence offences,” the police information sheet reads.
“Although the defendant has been brought before the court several times for her offences, the defendant continues to reoffend without any remorse and without regard for authority.”

According to court documents, the 32-year-old rammed a white Toyota Yaris into a barrier around 3:55 a.m. on February 7.
When police arrived, Finlayson was found unconscious in the driver’s seat as she was assisted by an “unknown and unrelated” witness, while moaning.
She did not respond to the police, prompting them to open the passenger door, which “immediately” caught her attention and she “started acting erratically”.
“The defendant leaned into the passenger side seat and said ‘Hey baby’ when no one was sitting there,” the court documents say.
Finlayson looked confused and became visibly upset and distressed. She was moved on a stretcher because she had difficulty standing.
She told authorities she had been drinking but could not answer any questions because she was still upset, according to court documents.
Finlayson was taken to Ryde Hospital for treatment, but police were told the following day that she “ran away from the hospital” without providing a urine sample.
A sample of his blood was sent for analysis where it tested positive for gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) and methylamphetamine (ice).
In court papers, police say Finlayson admitted to “relapsing and smoking methamphetamine” in July.
They said it was a ‘clear depiction of the defendant’s inability to quit drugs and rehabilitate himself, continuously posing a risk to other at-risk motorists without any remorse’ .
On Tuesday, her attorney also pleaded not guilty to a charge of unlawfully obtaining property, with police alleging she had two Visa NAB cards and a Medicare card that were believed to have been stolen, according to court documents.

Just four days before she was caught driving high, Finlayson appeared in court in an unrelated assault case with attorney Daniel Grippi, who told the court she was amid an “ongoing battle with addiction.”
At the time, Finlayson had completed a three-week rehabilitation program and was recommended to continue treatment.
The case was dismissed for mental health reasons.
She remains free on bail, with the case due back in court in October.
