Jailed drug offender blames wife's affair with ex-footballer

An ex-Hells Angel member who claims he turned to drugs because his wife allegedly was having an affair with a former footballer has been jailed.

Leo Eddy Hunt was sentenced in the Adelaide District Court to three years' jail with a non-parole term of 18 months for trafficking drugs.

The court was told that in June 2008 police found methylamphetamine and cocaine at Hunt's house, as well as a large amount of cash.

It heard Hunt was using drugs and was dealing at a street level to support his habit.

Judge Dean Clayton said Hunt started using drugs because of matrimonial difficulties.

Hunt claimed his wife allegedly had an affair with former Adelaide Crows footballer Tony McGuinness.

Judge Clayton said Hunt's prior convictions and a need to deter others from drug offending meant he could not suspend the jail term.
