There was no reaction from Sydney socialite Kirsty Dayment as she was sentenced to a minimum of three years and three months in jail.
The 35-year-old, who describes herself as a model, actress and dancer, smiled at a couple of supporters as she was led back to the cells at Downing Centre Local Court today.
Dayment pleaded guilty to supplying 85 grams of cocaine and taking part in the supply of 1.36 kilograms of MDMA following a six month sting by NSW Police.
She was arrested along with her boyfriend Nicholas Riganias when officers stormed their apartment on Arden Street at Coogee in July 2015.
Kirsty Dayment has been jailed.
Earlier that day Dayment received a text message from Riganias which read “any gear left?”
Another said “can you get new pearl today?”
The couple used the code words “pearl”, “Canberra” and “fish & chips” to describe cocaine.
Dayment replied: “Babe I don’t want to go downstairs there are cops everywhere.”
Despite her concerns she sold cocaine to another man who cannot be named for legal reasons.

Dayment’s lawyer had initially argued for a sentence to be served under supervision in the community, noting she was three months pregnant.
Judge Sarah Huggett rejected that, telling her she would have to give birth in custody.
But the court was later told she had miscarried.
The judge today acknowledged the trauma that would have caused.
But she also found Dayment “took an active and at times lead role in the supply…”
“She was not acting in a vacuum unaware and ignorant of what was going on,” she said.
Judge Huggett was also critical of Dayment’s supposed remorse, finding “she has sought at times to blame others and to minimise her involvement.”
She will be eligible for parole in 2020.
Her former boyfriend Riganias was handed a minimum 4.5 year sentence and with time already served will be eligible for parole the same year.
