Victims of alleged criminal offenses are often required to testify in court.

The courts are also open to the public for all adults, which means that everything said in open court is reproducible, including in media reports.

She was also disqualified from driving six times. She received a two-year revocation in October 2019 after opting to withhold the identity of the person driving her signature pink rover that had been involved in a collision at Bexley the previous year.
Katie was also warned last year that she could face imprisonment if she did not appear in court for a bankruptcy hearing.
