Queensland mum must pay son’s bail or be locked up

A mother will have to pay the price of her son’s alleged crime.

The Queensland Supreme Court has ordered Elizabeth Turner to cough up $315,000 or be put in jail for a year.

It’s part of a $450,000 surety for her son, Markis Scott Turner, who is facing drugs charges but has failed to appear in court several times, including for his trial last year.
