    A Dunedin woman who attempted to carjack a vehicle while high on LSD has been refused parole

    A Dunedin woman who attempted to carjack a vehicle while high on LSD has been refused parole


    24-year-old Lisa McCormack was sentenced to two years four months' imprisonment after the incident in 2019.

    In April, she had run out into a south Dunedin road while high and demanded access to a car waiting at the lights.

    An elderly nun and her brother refused - and he was forced to pull McCormack from the car by her ankles.

    A Parole Board's assessed her risk of reoffending as moderate to high.

    It's recommended McCormack receives counselling before she's released.
