Judge Tony Couch ruled that a conviction against Jeanette May McNee, 44, would outweight the gravity of the offence and adversely impact her
McNee was ordered to pay emotional reparation of $300 to the victim, a further $155 for loss of wages while victim gave evidence
in an earlier court hearing, and $388.13 to Queenstown Taxis for costs extracting video evidence.
Earlier this month McNee was found guilty of using offensive language against Malaysian-born taxi driver Ganesh Paramanathanwas.
She was on leave from the police force without pay at the time.
She was found guilty of telling Mr Paramanathanwas to "F.... to India. You come here and get all the Kiwi jobs; eat your f.... curry and f... off to India. This is a Kiwi job."
