Harriet Wran avoids jail after she admits to drug possession

The daughter of former NSW premier Neville Wran has been spared jail after she admitted possessing the drug ice.

Harriet Wran pleaded guilty in April to possessing drugs, goods in custody and not displaying P-plates less than three years after she was released from custody over her role in the robbery and murder of a Sydney drug dealer.

She was admitted to a rehabilitation centre days after her guilty plea and after a 28-day stay is now participating in a three-month residential program at another facility.

Magistrate Caleb Franklin on Wednesday convicted Wran at Wyong Local Court, fining her $550 for the drug and P-plate offences, and handing her a 12-month community corrections order for the goods on premises charge.

The now 31-year-old was charged after she was pulled over by police at a Central Coast service station at North Wyong in the early hours of February 27.

Officers found 0.96 grams of crystal methamphetamine and a number of items – including mail, identification cards and also electronic equipment.

Mr Franklin on Wednesday said the drug and P-plate offences were unremarkable and noted the small quantity of the drug involved.

Wran was previously released from jail in September 2016 after serving more than two years over her role in the robbery and murder of a Sydney drug dealer.

She was given a maximum four-year term for being an accessory to the August 2014 murder, robbery in company and harbouring her killer boyfriend afterwards.
