A drug dealer has been bashed so badly in a Canberra jail it left her with a broken nose and black eyes, a court has been told.

Hayley Louise Wood, 29, was openly upset during the hearing at the ACT Magistrates Court on Tuesday, which she attended with a swollen face. 

Defence lawyer Tim Sharman said Wood, who funded her lavish lifestyle through drug trafficking, should be released from jail.

Her father Peter told the court how upset he was when he found out his daughter was a drug dealer, the Canberra Star reported.  

‘I was a bit shocked at the nature of the charges, I wasn’t entirely shocked that she was in trouble,’ said Mr Wood. 

Woods was convicted of drink driving and fined on Tuesday and also pleaded guilty to drug trafficking, possession of two tasers and possession of tainted cash.

A friend of Woods died on her floor after overdosing on drugs, the court heard.

Prosecutor Elizabeth Wren brought up the death while arguing for a jail sentence.

‘What is concerning is that such a significant event did not cause her to cease her behaviour and reflect on her offending,’ Ms Wren said.

Police found $16,565 in cash at Woods’ home, and she paid for her black Mercedes Benz in cash. 

The court heard police found what appeared to be a Snapchat picture on Ms Woods phone boasting, ‘I’m a dealer now, made 4k profit today, moving 6k of product.’ 

Magistrate James Stewart said Woods’ crimes ‘screamed out’ for jail time. 

Woods will be further sentenced later this month.
