The wife of disgraced former Queensland MP Scott Driscoll has been committed to stand trial over perjury and dishonesty charges.
Emma Driscoll is charged with 10 counts of making a false entry in a record, three counts of perjury and three counts of knowingly giving an official a document that was false or misleading.
She entered no plea during her brief appearance in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday morning and was committed to stand trial in the Brisbane District Court at a date yet to be set.
The three lesser charges, of knowingly giving an official a document that was false or misleading, will be heard in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on December 11.
Her husband Scott Driscoll quit the state parliament in November last year after the ethics committee found him guilty of misleading the house about his financial interests and role in the Queensland Retail Traders and Shopkeepers Association.
The committee fined the 38-year-old former member for Redcliffe $90,000 for contempt. Mr Driscoll was a government MP who became an independent after the allegations emerged.
