Hannah Pierson appeared via video link from New Zealand at the Magistrates’ court. The court pleaded her guilty to six charges, including several assaults, public drunkenness, resisting, and assaulting the emergency services worker.
According to the evidence presented by her father, Terrence Pierson, the Instagram model suffers a series of mental health issues and is prone to’ mood swings’ at the hearing. She has ‘non-verbal learning disorder’, PTSD, and ‘oppositional defiance disorder’, according to the report tendered to the court.
Although she has recently returned to New Zealand after receiving mental health treatment, Magistrate Bate ordered Pierson to ‘return to the jurisdiction’ to serve her sentence.
