It comes after the reality TV star was arrested in October 2017 in a Queensland Police operation targeting drug trafficking, with police finding cannabis in his home and a large sum of cash.
Judge Paul Freeburn said during Jensen’s sentencing (via Australian Associated Press): “I would normally impose a custodial sentence for this type of serious offense (but) in my view this is an exceptional case.”
