Former Police prosecutor pleads guilty to escape more jail time

A GOLD Coast woman and former Police prosecutor has avoided another trip to the ‘big house’.

After spending about four months in jail last year for illegally intervening in a case, Rosanna Doolan returned to Brisbane District Court for her re-trial this morning.

The former Indy Girl changed her plea to guilty for one count of abuse of public office and one count of abuse of office for personal gain.


In May 2012, Ms Doolan used her position within the Police to help her then boyfriend to get a better outcome in his road rage assault case.

She was granted a re-trial in 2014 and freed from pre-sentencing custody in September.

She has now been handed a 10-month fully suspended sentence after pleading guilty to lesser charges.
