Hunt pleads guilty, cops fine

Hunt pleads guilty, cops fine

The prosecution formally dropped the cocaine possession charge this morning due to a lack of evidence.

Wallabies and Reds star Karmichael Hunt will remain sidelined, pending a Rugby Australia investigation, after avoiding a conviction on drugs charges.

Hunt was charged with drug possession late a year ago after being arrested in Brisbane, after having previously plead guilty to four charges of cocaine possession in 2015.

Karmichael Hunt has pleaded guilty to possession of Xanax and contravening a police direction in court on Monday, and has been hit with a $600 fine.

"You are a person in the public eye", Cosgrove said.

He said Hunt had been "in his own personal jail at home".

Hunt had the prescription medication pill to help deal with stress and anxiety, the court heard.

"He can't sleep, he had a tablet [Xanax] for that objective".

In explaining why his client had failed to return to the Fortitude Valley police station to provide fingerprints within a week of the charges, Magill said he had gone into a self-imposed lockdown and "it simply slipped his memory".

Hunt did not comment when he left court.

"It's been hanging over his head for a few weeks", he told reporters.

Wallaby and Reds rugby player Karmichael Hunt has escaped conviction for drug possession.

Rugby Australia is understood to be releasing a statement on his playing future soon.

"He's still got to make some inquiries with his manager", he said.

Hunt - a former rugby league player with Brisbane Broncos in the NRL - made his Wallabies debut last June, earning six appearances.

As well as his club fine he was stripped of the Reds' vice-captaincy, and he was also ordered to pay Aus$2,500 by magistrates on Queensland's Gold Coast.
