Ex-wife of casino mogul James Packer, Jodhi Meares has received a $1100 fine and a 12 month disqualification from driving after she pleaded guilty to high range drink driving charge in Waverley Local Court in Sydney.

In June Meares rolled her luxury 4WD into three parked cars in Bellevue Hill while she was almost four times the legal alcohol limit.

Sydney solicitor Chris Murphy, who represented Meares, told the Magistrate his client has been harassed by the media since the accident, saying that alone has been a “penalty beyond belief”.

Journalist Jodie Speers also tweeted Murphy said that because Meares is Packer’s ex-wife it “haunts everything that’s ever said about her”.
