Corr s bond on heroin charge

Actor *Ryan Corr *has been given a 12-month good behaviour bond after pleading guilty to possessing a small amount of heroin in a Sydney court.

The former Packed to the Rafters star, below right, walked from Waverley Local Court yesterday without a conviction.

His lawyer *Chris Murphy *argued Corr's career would suffer if a conviction was recorded as he could be prohibited from entering other countries to work.

Magistrate *Julie Huber *agreed.

"It is quite clear that you are a young man with a long, successful acting career and there is nothing to suggest that career won't continue," she said.

Corr, who won the 2011 Australians in Film *Heath Ledger *Scholarship, was before the court on one charge of possessing a prohibited drug after being found with a freezer bag containing 0.26g of heroin in a Bondi laneway in May.

No drug-using implements were found on him and he never took the drug, the court heard.

His father told reporters outside the court he was always proud of his son and that his career would speak for itself.

Corr, who was dressed in a sharp navy suit, is due to return to work shortly on the *Russell Crowe *-directed movie The Water Diviner, due for release on Boxing Day.

"I am looking forward to getting back to work," Corr said outside court before stepping into a nearby car.
