Byron DJ set to party



BYRON Bay DJ Nick Taylor was in good mental and physical health as he left Bali's Kerobokan prison on Wednesday after serving out his three-month, 10-day sentence for cocaine use.

Taylor's Indonesian lawyer, Erwin Siregar, told The Nothern Star yesterday his client has carried out his sentence under normal conditions within the Balinese jail, sharing a cell with up to six other inmates.

The 41-year-old was met by his partner and Australian consular officials as he left the jail, and headed directly for the airport to board a flight for Brisbane.

Mr Siregar visited Taylor every week in the prison, now famously the home of drug smugglers Schapelle Corby x and members of the 'Bali Nine'. He said his client remained '100 per cent OK' throughout his incarceration.

"Of course he was not happy about his sentence," Mr Siregar said.

"He is not a criminal, just a petty user.

"A user is not a criminal, according to my opinion."

Taylor was arrested on June 10 for possessing 0.3 of a gram of cocaine.

It is believed he will be the DJ at a homecoming event in his honour this weekend.

He is also supporting big-name DJ, Adam Freeland at The Great Northern Hotel in Byron Bay next week.
