A WAGGA womanwho sold rock salt to undercover to police claiming it was the drug ice is to be assessed for an intensive correction order (ICO).

Casey Cameron, 25, pleaded guilty to ongoing supply of a prohibited drug between May 20 and June 16 last year.

She had a number of interactions with Strike Force Calyx operatives.

Five of the small deals were genuine, but the last white crystal substance she sold turned out to be salt.

Judge Phillip Mahony heard sentencing submissions in Wagga District Court last week andwill finalise Cameron’ssentencing in August when the OCO assessment is complete.

Cameron toldpsychiatrist Dr Richard Furst she started using ice just months before selling it on the streets.

She told Dr Furst she supplied drugs because “it was a quick way to make money and get more drugs”.

“I wish I’d never done it,” Cameron told Dr Furst.

“I was bad on ice.

“I felt invincible.

“I now realise how stupid I was.”

Cameron went into the witness box during her sentencing hearing and was asked why she started using ice.

“Everyone was doing it. I don’t know why …I wish I didn’t,” Cameron said.

Judge Mahony said he was satisfied Cameron’s offending was borne out of her being addicted to methamphetamine.

The court heard that Cameron spent two months and 24 days in custody after her arrest before she was freed on Supreme Court bail.

Judge Mahony said he was pursuadeda custodial sentence of not more than two years was warranted in Cameron’s case.

That limit opened the door for the judge to consider an ICO for Cameron.
