The detox heiress accused of having sex twice in one day with a 14-year-old boy has hired a celebrity lawyer for her upcoming trial.
Wellness guru Savannah Daisley, 46, has retained a high-profile lawyer for the stars Bryan Wrench ahead of her trial in the New South Wales District Court in October.
Wrench, who represented former NRL star Sam Burgess and Wolf Creek actor John Jarratt, recently defended a retiree in his high-profile fight against music star Guy Sebastian.
Ms Daisley appeared at Sydney’s Downing Center on Monday with Mr Wrench for pre-trial hearings which included arranging for closed-door court recordings of various child witnesses.
The famous naturopath is facing trial over allegations that she had sex twice with a 14-year-old boy in May 2021.

The court heard earlier this year that the evidence expected to be produced includes material from a jail cell and data extracted and analyzed from two phones.
Police allege that Daisley and the 14-year-old girl drank alcohol before she allegedly had sex with him on two occasions and that she was highly intoxicated at the time.
Police legally tapped a phone call following the alleged incidents in which Daisley allegedly told the boy never to speak of them again.
Daisley pleaded not guilty to two charges of sex with a child in December of last year.
He was granted bail last year after his father, champion horse breeder Ross Daisley, obtained a $100,000 guarantee.

Wellness guru Savannah Daisley continues to run her business while out on bail
She continues to run her celebrity-endorsed business, Smart Cleanse, which comprises capsules and powers that the website says promise to detoxify clients’ bodies, de-stress, lose pounds and “reverse aging.”
Customers who want to lose weight and ‘detox their bodies’ shell out $199.95 for a 14-day starter pack.
Its products are sold across Australia after it won deals with pharmaceutical giant Priceline in 2018 and supplement giant Mr Vitamin in 2020.
The self-described naturopath has 31,000 followers on Instagram thanks to her two-week detox program and has written two books on wellness.
The equestrian heiress must live with her parents in the NSW Southern Highlands, report to the police twice a week and undergo drug and alcohol tests to ensure compliance with the conditions of his bail.
Daisley is prohibited from being in the company of children unless supervised and may not contact the alleged victim or any witnesses.
Wrench has become a lawyer to the stars in recent years, with the 35-year-old representing Burgess when he was accused of domestic abuse against his ex-wife Phoebe Burgess’s father, and defending Jarratt on rape charges.
Known for his flashy double-breasted suits, Mr. Wrench sometimes works pro bono, for free, as he did with Phillip Hanslow, the elderly neighbor accused of bullying Sebastian over their shared fence, before Mr. Wrench stepped in and the charges were dropped and dismissed.
