Beautician who laced friend’s drink with ecstasy claims ‘she didn’t know why’

A beautician told her pal the cocktails had a "special ingredient" after she laced her drink with ecstasy, a court heard

Tanya Windsor, 25, spiked young mum Chantelle Booker with a high concentration of MDMA but claims she "doesn't know why she did it".

Windsor watched as her friend became "wobbly" after consuming the mystery beverage, Maidstone Crown Court heard.

Prosecutor Ed Fowler said: "This case is about the defendant sprinkling MDMA in a cocktail. Windsor and Ms Booker had been friends for about 10 years.

"They had lost contact and had not seen each other for three years before this incident."

Booker avoided jail and was handed a two-year community order.

Fowler explained how the pair reconnected and met up at Booker's flat on May 15 last year.

The defendant arrived with two cocktails in 500ml bottles and allegedly encouraged Booker to drink the one meant for her, Kent Online reports.

Windsor told her it was a "special ingredient called MD."

Mr Fowler said: "Booker was shocked and upset by this and she noticed her pupils were enlarged and she felt uncomfortable. And as a precaution asked her mother to take care of her young daughter."

The beautician later sent a series of Whatsapp messages apologising for the incident, claiming she didn't know why she'd done it.

Defending, Christopher Whiteman said: "She has learned from this incident and has started to show signs of maturity. This was stupid, and reckless but was never intended to cause any harm.

"Even to this day, she can't explain her actions that night or what possessed her to act in the way she did."

The victim called the police who took away samples of the drink for analysis which revealed a high concentration of ecstasy.

Windsor was arrested and admitted spiking the drink, telling officers she was aware Booker was against drugs.

Windsor pleaded guilty to "administering a poison or noxious substance – MDMA – with intent to injure, aggrieve or annoy" – an offence which carries a maximum five-year prison sentence.
