Former Reality TV Star Jacques Fraser Admits to Involvement in Cocaine Supply, Faces Possible Lengthy Jail Sentence

Reality TV star Jacques Fraser is facing a possible lengthy jail sentence after admitting to his involvement in the supply of cocaine. The former Ex On The Beach star appeared in Maidstone Crown Court via video link from his solicitor’s office on April 16. Fraser, who boasts a following of 45,000 on Instagram and describes himself as an entrepreneur, pleaded guilty to being concerned in the supply of a class A drug between March and June of 2020.

The 33-year-old Liverpool resident was seen sitting with crutches in front of him during the brief hearing. His defense attorney, Glenn Harris, informed the court that Fraser is scheduled to undergo two operations on his leg, the first of which is set for next week. Due to his medical needs, sentencing has been adjourned until after his surgeries and recovery period.

Fraser’s lawyer also stated that the defense is awaiting a report from an expert on the exact amount of cocaine involved in the case. However, during a previous hearing on April 3, Judge Robert Lazarus noted that the prosecution believes Fraser acted as a “runner” for large amounts of cocaine. He also mentioned that the potential punishment for such a serious offense is a “meaty sentence” and the chances of escaping immediate custody are slim.

Fraser’s attorney acknowledged that his client is aware he is likely to face jail time. The court also learned that Fraser’s right leg is at risk of being amputated, even with surgery, due to a previous injury from a car accident. The judge also mentioned that Fraser had appeared in court in a state of undress from his own bed in the past. However, arrangements may be made for Fraser to be sentenced in the dock at Liverpool Crown Court via video link to the Maidstone court.

The sentencing date has been set for June 25, and Fraser’s attendance, as well as that of a co-defendant who pleaded guilty separately, has been excused. Fraser, who appeared on the 2017 season of Ex On The Beach, made headlines in July 2020 when he was spared prison for dangerous driving. He had rammed a stolen BMW into a pursuing police car while banned from driving. He received a suspended sentence for the offense.

Fraser’s legal troubles continue as he faces the possibility of a long jail sentence for his involvement in the supply of cocaine. His sentencing will take place later this year, and it remains to be seen how the court will handle his medical needs. As a local journalist, we will continue to provide updates on this ongoing case.
