The court was told he "forgot" to report to police as required on February 24.

Turner has been on bail since October last year when he was allegedly caught trafficking drugs and possessing dangerous drugs.

Magistrate Pamela Dowse convicted and did not further punish Turner for the breach of bail.

Defence lawyer Campbell MacCallum, of Moloney MacCallum Abdelshahied Lawyers, asked for the condition that Turner report to police be removed.

"My client is a professional fitness athlete and at this time he is susceptible for virus and flu. His doctor has advised he should not really leave the house."
