Glamorous vegan, 22, who stormed a chicken farm and a piggery whinges that her conviction ‘isn’t fair’- because her animal activist mate got off with a fine and she is a ‘peaceful person’

  • Hayley Adams filed appeal at Toowoomba Magistrates Court last Wednesday 
  • The 22-year-old had been given conviction for two counts of trespassing 
  • Adams entered Williams Eggs and Cameron Pastoral with friend Leah Watton
  • Watton was ordered to pay $1,000 fine during sentencing on September 1
  • Adams was ordered to 50 hours community service and handed a conviction
  • She has called it unfair and wants to overturn conviction and travel to America 

A vegan activist says she should have only been given a fine like her friend and not a conviction for trespassing after they both stormed into an egg farm and piggery. 

Hayley Marie Adams, 22, called it ‘unfair’ that she was handed the stiff penalty and filed an appeal at the District Court in Toowoomba, Queensland, last Wednesday.

Court documents said Adams and Leah Watton entered Williams Eggs in Canningvale between December 31, 2018 and January 3, 2019, The Courier Mail reported.

The pair also entered piggery Cameron Pastoral at Pittsworth as part of a ‘rescue raid’ between July 12 and July 15, 2019. 

Watton pleaded guilty and was ordered to pay a $1,000 fine during sentencing on September 1.

Adams broke down in tears as she was handed 50 hours of community service and handed a conviction on two counts of trespassing.

Magistrate Kay Ryan reportedly noted Adams had three prior finalised criminal charges for trespass and that her ‘pattern of behaviour’ had to be met with a ‘penalty’, the Courier-Mail reported. 

Adams has reportedly appealed the decision, arguing Watton had a string of previous charges.

Adams and Watton had also entered the Pittsworth piggery with bikini model Lauren McGeachin.

McGeachin was given 90 hours of community service and a $300 fine.

Adams told media outside of court it was not fair to receive a criminal conviction.  

‘It is bizarre that I have been labelled as a convicted criminal,’ she said.

‘When we enter farms we are only armed with a camera, we want to be nonviolent and peaceful.’

Adams hopes to have the conviction overturned so she can travel to America and pursue her dreams of becoming a singer.
