Richmond young pistol Sydney Stack pleaded guilty to violating Western Australia’s COVID-19 quarantine rules.
Stack appeared before the Perth Magistrates Court today and pleaded guilty to one count of failing to comply with a direction.
The 20-year-old will be sentenced on March 25.
The magistrate extended Stack’s bail and ordered the collection of pre-sentence reports and psychiatric reports.
Stack was released on bail on January 8 after spending nearly three weeks, including Christmas, in jail.
The third-year tiger has been charged by police after violating its mandatory quarantine period in Northbridge, after entering Western Australia from Victoria on a flight through South Australia.
The Western Australian border was closed but Stack approved entry on December 10 on compassionate grounds for his grandfather’s funeral.
He was ordered to self-isolate for 14 days at a specific address in Northam, but police caught him at 1:10 a.m. on December 19 partying in Northbridge.
It was also alleged that Stack was living in a residence in Belmont instead of the quarantine address he had designated.
