Appeal for trafficker denied

A MAN who was jailed for trafficking about $80,000 of ice in Castlemaine has lost an application to appeal his four-year sentence.

Jak Kennedy-Hunt, 24, was imprisoned in September last year for charges of trafficking ice, possessing a firearm and a flick knife and escaping from police custody.

The drugs and weapons were seized when a car Kennedy-Hunt was travelling in was searched by police in Castlemaine in August 2012. Kennedy-Hunt had been an AFL draft prospect but suffered a series of injuries and setbacks before turning to ice.

The Supreme Court Court of Appeal ruled on Friday there was no reasonable grounds for him to argue that the length of his custodial sentence was excessive.
