What Happened to Brett Finch To?

The former Parramatta and Melbourne ace halfback has denied the messages were “fantasies” but rather said he was attempting to make drugs. The former NSW State of Origin hero has suffered a dramatic fall from grace after he went to pleaded guilty to one count of using a carriage service to make available child abuse material.  

According to a statement of agreed facts, between November 2020 and January 2021, Finch also used the FastMeet service to send messages to other men about wanting to have sex with pubescent and teenage boys.  Many of the shocking messages are too graphic to publish.

Giving evidence in the sentencing hearing in Sydney’s Downing Centre District Court on Monday, Finch denied having a s*xual interest in children or ever accessing child abuse material online.  “Have you ever had a s*xual interest in children?” Finch was asked by his supportive barrister Mike Smith.  “Never,” Finch replied.  He has described how, at the height of his addiction, he would use 12g to 25g of cocaine a week and go on five-day benders.  

He began using the FastMeet service because he was told by his dealer it could be used to source drugs.  Finch also told the court that during one of his stints in rehab, he had heard gay men talk about how methamphetamine has made them “hypers*xual”.  He said that in his mind if he left a sick message for other users, those that replied would be likely to have drugs. “In my mind, I believed that leaving twisted messages, if I got a reply, I’d have more chance of obtaining drugs,” Finch reported.
