Magistrate lashes former Roosters player Paul Carter for no-show on drug sentence

A Sydney magistrate says it's "absolutely unacceptable" that former NRL Roosters player Paul James Carter failed to show up for his court sentencing for supplying cocaine.

The 25-year-old was due to be sentenced at Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday for supplying a small quantity of the drug to ex-teammate Shaun Kenny- Dowall at the Ivy nightclub in early May.

Carter initially pleaded not guilty to supplying a prohibited drug but it emerged in October he'd changed his plea to guilty.

His lawyer, Daniel Grippi, on Wednesday told the court his client was "suffering from significant stress and anxiety". It was revealed Carter was overseas in a rehabilitation centre.

Mr Grippi said he emailed the court last week after becoming aware of Carter's travel.

However, that didn't sit well with magistrate Susan McIntyre.

"It's not your decision to make," she said on Wednesday.

"He's gone off overseas and we're just supposed to stand around here waiting for him?

"It is just unacceptable ... absolutely unacceptable."

The defence sought an adjournment until February 20 but the magistrate ordered the matter return to court on January 10.

Carter was excused from appearing if he is legally represented.

"What I am proposing, having vented my spleen about this matter, is that we have an update well prior to the amended sentence (date)," Ms McIntyre said.

"It's my view that he should be present today."

The magistrate asked for the update to include Carter's whereabouts and details of his participation in rehabilitation. She told Mr Grippi to treat the situation as "a lesson".

Kenny-Dowall, who now plays for the Newcastle Knights, was previously spared a conviction after he pleaded guilty to possessing .29 of a gram of cocaine at the nightclub.

The 29-year-old was sentenced in June to a 12-month good behaviour bond.
