Police had approached the vehicle when they suspected it was unregistered and found Tuesley seated in the car wearing a bra and had his penis exposed through his jeans.

There was also syringes visible throughout the vehicle.

Appearing via visual link on Monday in the Lismore District Court, Tuesley's sentencing date has been set for April 6.
