Supply "ice" to de facto wife not so cool: Court

A TOOWOOMBA man who popped some "ice" into his de facto wife's mouth has pleaded guilty to the charge of supplying a dangerous drug to another.

Police had arrived at the home of Daniel McNicol Schneider in the early hours of July 1, 2015, to find ambulance officers treating his partner, Toowoomba District Court heard.

The woman told officers her partner had given her something which she had swallowed after which he had left the house, prosecutor Chris Wilkins told the court.

An agitated Schneider had then returned home and admitted to police he had just had "three points of ice" which he had "booted" (injected), Mr Wilkins said.

Initially telling police he had given his partner some ice which she had eaten, he later said he had put the drug into her mouth.

He had also been found with a small amount of the drug and a straw for scooping it up to be used, the court heard.

The 28-year-old pleaded guilty to supplying methylamphetamine as well as possessing the drug and a drug related utensil.

His barrister Isaac Munsie told the court his client had been drug addicted after smoking marijuana from 13 years of age to using methylamphetamine and ecstasy by 18.

However, his client had taken significant steps to get himself off drugs, had separated from the woman and was regularly attending Narcotics Annonymous, he said.

Noting Schneider had previous convictions for drug offences but acknowledging his efforts at rehabilitation, Judge Brendan Butler sentenced him to nine months in jail but ordered he be released immediately on parole.
