Disgraced Auckland lawyer Davina Murray is back in court, this time on a charge of failing to stop for police.

Murray was found guilty in August of smuggling into prison an iPhone and tobacco to rapist and murderer Liam Reid – a client she said she had fallen in love with and planned to marry.

A couple of months later, she was sentenced in the Auckland District Court to 50 hours' community work by Judge Russell Collins, who refused to discharge her without conviction.

She was back in the same court this morning where she denied failing to stop for a police patrol car that had engaged its flashing lights.

The alleged incident happened on Sunday.

The 39-year-old Remuera resident, who represented herself in court, will be back before the court to defend the charge in February.

Murray was refused a practising certificate by the New Zealand Law Society, after it decided she was "not a fit and proper person to hold a practising certificate" based on her conduct.
