MWG was approached by a man at a Bondi pub, who befriended MWG and asked MWG for help in obtaining drugs. MWG took money from the man and used it to buy a gram of cocaine – MWG did not benefit financially from this transaction. The man was an undercover policeman; MWG was arrested the next day and charged with supplying a prohibited drug.
MWG plead guilty to the charge. The Local Court recorded a conviction against MWG, and sentenced him to a 2-year good behaviour bond and a fine.
