A woman accused of repeatedly raping a 14-year-old girl she lured from a shopping mall on Sydney's upper north shore will stand trial with her boyfriend next year.
Rachel Smith, 23, is accused of bringing two 14-year-old girls from Hornsby Mall to her home in the same suburb where she and her partner raped one of the girls for hours.
Smith and her partner Matthew Blazely, 32, have each been committed to stand trial over 10 alleged offences including four counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a person aged 14 to 16.
When Smith was asked if she was present in Downing Centre District Court on Monday, she stood, smiled and waved her fingers towards the judge.
Police allege Smith met two 14-year-old girls at Hornsby Mall on November 1 and took them to the home she shared with Blazely in Denison Street. Smith and Blazely plied them both with alcohol.
One of the girls left but the other remained and the Crown will allege she was raped by Smith and Blazely for hours.
When that girl left the premises she called police. The State Crime Command's Child Abuse Squad investigated and executed a search warrant on the Denison Street address the next day.
'While executing the warrant, the man and woman returned to the property and were arrested, before being taken to Hornsby police station,' a police spokesman said at the time.
Two days after the rapes, Smith and Blazely appeared in custody at Hornsby Local Court.
That court heard Smith said the two girls she took back to the home she shared with Blazely were not in school uniform - instead they wore 'trackies' - and they seemed 'mature'.
Hornsby Local Court heard Smith believed the two girls were 18 when she met them and would claim the girl she raped had consented to the acts.
Both would plead not guilty and Blazely would claim he was not at the house when the rapes occurred.
'There are complications of alcohol being provided … there's a suggestion of the victim passing out at one stage.'
Smith was initially granted bail but police appealed and it was refused. She was subsequently granted bail on November 10. Blazely was remanded in custody and remains in prison.
Smith and Blazely are each charged with four counts of aggravated sexual intercourse with a person aged between 14 and 16 and three counts of aggravated sexual assault in company.
They are also accused of aggravated sexual assault of a person under 16, committing an act of indecency with a person under 16 and indecent assault of a person under 16.
Downing Centre District Court heard on Monday the Crown would present expert DNA evidence at what is expected to be a 10-day trial.
Four juvenile witnesses including the complainant were expected to give evidence.
Smith and Blazely are due to face trial on March 19 next year.

TULSA, Oklahoma -
A Tulsa woman has been charged with six counts of child sexual abuse for sexually abusing her 1-year-old daughter, recording the abuse and then sending the videos to her boyfriend in Florida.
Jerrica Lackey, 29, is charged with child sexual abuse of a child under 12.
According to the federal criminal complaint filed June 20, 2017, Lackey's offenses include sexual exploitation of a child, distribution and/or receipt of a visual depiction of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct and possession of child pornography.
The document shows the offenses took place between March 2017 and May 16, 2017.
According to the FBI Special Agent's report in the criminal complaint, Lackey recorded herself abusing the baby and she also took nude photos of the baby.
The agent stated that Lackey then sent the videos and photos to her boyfriend in Florida, who Lackey said requested the photos and videos. She said her boyfriend would get mad and "punish" her if she forgot to send the images and videos, the document shows.
According to the complaint, Lackey called 911 on May 16, 2017, to notify them that she'd molested her child. Lackey called 911 after the baby's father showed up to her home and borrowed her cell phone to make a call, but noticed messages from Lackey's boyfriend.
The father checked the messages and saw that the man referred to a mobile app called 'Kik,' and when the father opened the app he saw pictures and videos of Lackey and their daughter, according to the document.
The father then took the baby and told Lackey he was reporting her to the police and turning in her phone.
It was then that Lackey called 911.
She was taken into custody on May 22.
Lackey will appear in Tulsa County court on June 30th.
