BRETT Wicks, brother of former Newcastle Knight and Grafton Ghost Danny Wicks has appealed against the severity of his jail term - his lawyer arguing he should have been given the same sentence as his sibling for trafficking drugs.
The Newcastle Herald said Wicks did not appear in Sydney's Court of Criminal Appeal on Thursday, where his barrister Chrissa Loukas argued there was little difference between the criminality of her client and that of Danny and that the extra three month sentence imposed upon Brett was not to be "trifled with".
Wicks previously pleaded guilty to two counts of supplying amphetamines in Grafton having sourced the drugs from his brother.
He was sentenced to three years and three months' jail, with a non-parole period of 21 months. Soon after, Danny was given a three-year jail term with a non-parole period of 18 months.
The appeal decision was adjourned, said the Herald.
