Rich party boy admitted selling all kinds of illegal drugs. The sentencing judge felt probation was appropriate after determining that the drug dealer was truly remorseful for his actions.
James Mina, the owner of the party promotion company MisDeMina and a personal trainer at Fitness First Rockdale, pleaded guilty to prohibited drug supply and prohibited drug possession in Sutherland Local Court on September 18, 2020.
The 23-year old Mina was arrested and charged with seven drug-related offenses after police seized quantities of various illicit drugs from his bedroom in February 2020. Mina lived in his parents’ mansion in the exclusive Sydney suburb of Sylvania Water.
James Mina has lots of anabolic steroids, growth hormone, cocaine, MDMA and amphetamines.
Australian Police seized 10.53 grams of oxandrolone (Anavar), 1.68 grams of mesterolone (Proviron), 21.7 grams of testosterone, and 20 vials of human growth hormone (Somatropin). In addition to the muscle-building drugs, police also discovered 20.48 grams of cocaine in six bags of white powder, 4.32 grams of MDMA (Ecstasy) in five plastic bags of brown granules, and 0.78 grams of dexamphetamine.
Mina spent one week in jail following his arrest. However, Mina was only given the proverbial slap on the wrist when it came time to sentencing. Local Court Magistrate Holly Kemp determined that Mina was genuinely remorseful for his actions. Kemp only sentenced Mina to a 12-month community correction order and a $1000 fine.
Magistrate Kemp chastised Mina for his actions but did not feel he should spend any time in jail.
““I’m satisfied your remorse is complete and that you continue to take positive steps towards your rehabilitation…You took your drug offending into your parents’ home – the people that love you and support you – and they have had to suffer through this process too,” Magistrate Kemp said.
“In effect they got dragged into your mess – I hope this serves as a firm reminder to stay away from drugs because it can pull the carpet out from under you.”
Mina admitted using some of the recreational drugs and selling the others. Mina had numerous clients through his positions as a personal trainer with Fitness First Rockdale and as the party planner for MisDeMina. Police did not reveal if the performance-enhancing drugs were distributed via Fitness First or recreational psychoactive drugs were distributed via MisDeMina.
