Carter pleads guilty to supplying teammate with cocaine

Ex-Sydney Roosters player Paul Carter has pleaded guilty to supplying former teammate Shaun Kenny-Dowall with cocaine.

Despite not appearing at his hearing earlier today, Carter’s solicitor pleaded guilty on his behalf at Downing Centre Local Court.

Carter was captured on CCTV handing over the drugs at The Ivy Nightclub in May, with Kenny Dowall pleading guilty to possessing the cocaine when he attended court in June.

Carter will now be sentenced on November 29, with his Rugby League career in tatters following this latest incident.

Both players were released by the Roosters in June but Kenny Dowall was quickly given a career lifeline by the Newcastle Knights, signing for them just one week later.

Carter, who was twice charged with drink driving while playing for the Titans in 2014, was sacked by South Sydney in July 2016 for failing to turn up to training following a weekend bender.

In June 2016, he was also stood down for turning up to training drunk and following his sacking by the Rabbitohs, he checked into an alcohol rehabilitation centre in Thailand.

Carter played out the remainder of the 2017 season with Coffs Harbour Comets and now faces an almost impossible task to resurrect his professional league career.
