Canberra Man Jailed Over Drug Dispute


A Canberra man who tortured a person over missing drugs last year has been jailed for 16 months.

The court heard the victim was taped to a chair and water-boarded. He also had his throat cut and was punched until he lost consciousness.

36-year-old Barry Avery has pleaded guilty to several charges, including unlawful confinement and trafficking in a controlled drug.

The sentence has been backdated to account for time already served, meaning Avery will be eligible for release in May.
