Ex-AFL coach Laidley extends rehab keep – Warrnambool Normal

News, national

Former AFL player and coach Dean Laidley has had his rehab stay extended by a Melbourne court. The 53-year-old premier player was released on bail last month after being charged with stalking and drug charges. A judge ordered to spend 28 days in a rehabilitation facility in Geelong before moving to temporary accommodation. However, his lawyer requested an extension on Tuesday. Rob Stary said Laidley would need a week to 10 days for the first phase of the rehab center before spending a few months in a temporary facility in Melbourne. Laidley is accused of threatening and persecuting a woman over a financial dispute. It is believed that he took photos of an apartment where the woman lived and that he asked the corporation for CCTV material. The police also allege that they found 0.43 g of crystals, presumably methamphetamine, in a self-adhesive bra that Laidley was wearing when he was arrested. Mr. Stary told judge Kieran Gilligan that he expected Laidley to plead guilty to some charges. "There is only one discussion that we still have to have – we expect everything to be resolved," he said. His case was adjourned until December 14. The AFL Players Association funds Laidley's internal care facility, which provides 24-hour monitoring, drug testing and treatment. Former coaches Mark Williams, Guy McKenna and Denis Pagan wrote references for Laidley, as did his former teammates Brent Harvey and Wayne Schwass from North Melbourne and ex-club president James Brayshaw. "This man is now a very different person from those who knew and knew him well," said his lawyer Phil Dunn last month. He said Laidley's mental health has been bad for some time since he left his football bubble. Australian Associated Press
