Vegan activist sentenced for trespassing factory farm says she “would do it again”

Yvonne O'Halloran

Animal rights activist Hayley Marie Adams has been sentenced for trespassing on two Queensland factory farms in the Darling Downs region.

The 22 year old pleaded guilty to two trespass offences at the Toowoomba Magistrates Court and was ordered to complete 50 hours of community service.

Adams had three prior trespass offences on her record, though this is the first time she has been convicted due to a “continued pattern of behaviour”, according to the Magistrate.

Despite her criminal conviction, Adams claims that she is “not sorry” and that “unjust laws need to be broken”.

She told the Daily Mail Australia: “My intentions were to go into these horrific places and film what is happening to these animals and let the public know what they are contributing to,”

Nothing I could ever go through would ever top the pain and suffering I saw in these places.”

Ms Adams has stated that she has no intention of committing any more illegal acts, though is considering appealing the conviction.
