The application by his lawyer Cassandra Ditchfield was in relation to new drug offences including supply (trafficking).

He was refused bail.
He was refused bail.

Opposed by the Crown on the grounds the unemployed single father of four was an unacceptable risk and may reoffend, Judge David Searles agreed.

Woodrow was due to be released on parole this week but will now remain in jail. Judge Searles after reading Crown documents before him said he understood why there was concern.

In her application Ms Ditchfield said he had been addicted to ice and was the first time Woodrow had been jailed.

"It's the first time he's been forced to be 100% clean for any length of time," she said.

Judge Searles said the risk was if he got back in with his old crowd and reoffends.
