Reality TV star Suzi Taylor found not guilty in extortion trial, but to remain in jail

Reality TV star Suzi Taylor and her co-accused Ali Ebrahimi have been found not guilty in their extortion trial.
Ms Taylor, 50, and Mr Ebrahimi were accused of holding a man hostage, assaulting and demanding money from him.
They were both found not guilty in Brisbane District Court.
The former contestant on The Block was accused of holding David Butler against his will for hours, tying him up and bashing him at a Newfarm apartment in 2019, after he refused to pay Ms Taylor for escort services.
Mr Butler was caught in a number of inconsistencies about what he told police at the time, and what he said in his evidence.
Outside court, Ms Taylor’s lawyer Michael Gatenby, said it was “absolutely disgraceful this woman has been locked up by something as spurious, as this outrageous complaint by the complainant”.
“This man had made up a story that quite frankly wasn’t true.”
However, Ms Taylor remains in custody, facing charges of breaches of bail and failing to appear.
