She was due to appear at Lavender Hill magistrates’ court, South London, but asked for the hearing to be delayed so all three offences could be dealt with on the same day.
Magistrate John Soones said: “The interests of justice are more likely to be served by all three maters being listed together.
“This bench has now decided to make an administrative adjournment.”
