Aussie Mother Sent To Prison For Leading Police On 140 MPH Chase With Mercedes-AMG E 63 S

A driver in Australia has been sentenced to 18 months behind bars after leading the police on a chase at speeds of up to 230 km/h (143 mph), News.com.au reports.

In November last year, 28-year-old Margarita Tomovska, who has earned the nickname ‘Mercedes Mum,’ was arrested for going more than double the speed limit in her Mercedes-AMG E 63 S. She also had a three-year-old child in the back sitting in a car seat that was not properly restrained.

Her defense lawyer claimed that she was under duress when she decided to speed away from a highway patrol car because of her front-seat passenger. This passenger, a man named Christopher King, was reportedly so big that authorities needed two sets of handcuffs to restrain him. Magistrate Susan McGowan ruled that Tomovska was not under duress.

In sentencing the 28-year-old to 18 months in jail with a non-parole period of nine months, Magistrate Roger Clisdell said it was fortunate no one was killed in the high-speed chase.

“One can only think of the horror of what could’ve happened had there been any impact between her vehicle and police,” he said. “The child would’ve been propelled with speeds of at least 150 km/h in that vehicle. It’s hard to think of a police pursuit that would be more dangerous given the speeds involved.”

Police prosecutor Amelia Wall added that Tomovska had shown no signs of regret for her actions.

“The defendant has shown absolutely no remorse. In fact, quite the opposite. She has relished in the attention. Boasting and skylarking on social media. Playing the victim on a GoFundMe page titled ‘Fight Raptor’ trying to raise $100,000 for her own use, all the while gloating on social media about spending thousands on clothing and accessories.”

    p.o.s. and so are anyone who supports that.

    • THIS SITE ISN’T HELPING BY POSTING HER INSTAGRAM FEED. NO DOUBT SHE’LL GET A FEW CLICKS FROM SOME HORNED UP READERS, FEEDING HER NARCISSISM.

        it’s wrong, and its sad. many in society have no sense of care, obviously not that smart.

  • Mr. EP9

    She definitely deserves jail time especially behaving like that. Unsurprisingly, her actions on social media just proves she’s yet another worthless clout chaser looking for any type of e-fame she can get while playing the victim. Disgraceful.

    So basically she’s getting a 9month stay at the taxpayer’s expense. Its amazing how little child endangerment, resisting arrest and breaking a gaggle of traffic laws amounts to in mandatory prison time. I’m sure she’ll squeal “But I’m a mom!” and get parole as soon as it’s available.

    Before she does time she should ask Martha Stewart how to make margaritas in the toilet

  • Wandering_Spirit

    With the safety features she is equipped with i consider 140 mph to be a safe speed.

    • Astonman

      i see what you did there.

  • Rimas Kurtinaitis

    It’s her lawyer’s.

  • brn

    Why did she run?

  • Six_Tymes

    SPOT ON good point. shows how slanted (for lack of a better word) people who call themselves, and work as “journalists” really are. Like him or hate him, I see why trump used the “fake news” term. I mean, people in actual news tv and radio stations do the same thing.

    • I WOULDN’T CALL THIS ARTICLE FAKE NEWS, PERHAPS NOT WHAT PEOPLE COMING TO A CAR BLOG EXPECT. POSTING HER INSTAGRAM IS GOING FOR THE SENSATIONAL ANGLE.

  • benT

    with such expensive cars and more, there can be no wondering why they have such cheap hoes.

  • Charles Chin

    If she can afford an E63s, she can afford to sit in jail for an extended period. Those who funds her are complete idiots.
