Australian singer Shannon Noll pleads guilty to drug charge

Singer Shannon Noll has pleaded guilty to cocaine possession in Sydney.

The 43-year-old's lawyer, Bryan Wrench, entered the plea at Sutherland Local Court today, while Noll sat outside the courtroom.

Mr Wrench asked that the charge of possessing a prohibited drug immediately proceed to sentence.

Police caught Noll with 0.53 grams of cocaine in a clear, resealable bag, according to the amended facts.

The Australian Idol 2003 runner-up arrived at court, in the rain, wearing a blue suit and tie.
