An heiress and wellness guru has had a court-ordered curfew lifted as she prepares to fight allegations at trial that she had sex with a 14-year-old boy.
Savannah Daisley has pleaded not guilty to allegations that she had sex with a teenager in late May 2021.
Ms Daisley failed to appear in court at Sydney’s Downing Center District Court on Tuesday after her lawyer, Bryan Screw, successfully applied for a variation of her bail conditions.
Police allege the 46-year-old gave the boy alcohol before she had sex with him, the court has previously heard.
Ms Daisley, the daughter of champion horse breeder Ross Daisley, is due to stand trial in the District Court next month after pleading not guilty to two counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a child under 16.
Wellness guru Savannah Daisley (pictured), 46, has pleaded not guilty to allegations she had sex with a teenager in late May 2021.
It is alleged she spoke to the teenager on the phone and asked him to remain quiet, the court has previously been told.
Ms Daisley previously pleaded not guilty and was returned to court in October.
The court had previously been told that a number of child witnesses, including the alleged victim, would give evidence via pre-recorded interviews.
Ms Daisley had previously been released on bail under a series of conditions after posting a $100,000 surety.
As part of her conditional release, she must live with her parents in the Southern Highlands, not contact any prosecution witnesses and not take alcohol or drugs unless prescribed by a doctor.
She was also ordered to observe a curfew from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.

The heiress failed to appear in Sydney’s Downing Center District Court on Tuesday after her lawyer successfully applied for a variation of her bail conditions.
This condition was, however, removed on Tuesday by Judge Warwick Hunt, with the agreement of the prosecution.
Ms Daisley runs a celebrity-backed business called Smart Cleanse.
Last week, she took to Instagram to tell her more than 31,000 followers that she was facing “adversity” in her life.
“Hey beautiful souls…I’m sharing a story that taught me to embrace adversity as a gateway to becoming the best version of myself,” she said.
“It’s a journey to become stronger, fitter, more resilient and healthier against all odds.”
It is alleged Ms Daisley spoke to the boy on the phone and asked him to keep quiet.
As part of her bail, Ms Daisley must live with her parents, observe a curfew, not contact any prosecution witnesses and not take alcohol or drugs unless prescribed by a doctor.
“Life often surprises us with its twists and turns, doesn’t it? Sometimes unfair.
“About a year ago, I was faced with a storm of personal challenges.
“Instead of feeling constant heartbreak, at some point I had a bit of an awakening and decided to see adversity as an invitation to grow.
“I looked for the gifts in all the pain and I am so grateful that I did.”
