SINGER Allison Durbin pleaded guilty to drug charges in Melbourne's County Court today.
The singer, now known as Allison Giles, was expected to face trial today, but instead pleaded guilty to one count of trafficking in a drug of dependence, one count of cultivation of narcotic plants and one count of theft of electricity.
Judge Ian Robertson adjourned the plea hearing to Wednesday this week.
Now in her mid-50s, Giles won the Queen of Pop title in 1969, 1970 and 1971.
She had a string of hits, including Put Your Hand In The Hand, but publicly admitted to a heroin addiction in 1985.
