ROXY Jacenko spent a weekend outing with a male friend at Bondi just days before her jailed husband Oliver Curtis’ court appeal against his prison sentence.

Jacenko, who was a no show at Curtis’ Court of Criminal Appeal hearing, enjoyed a drink with a bearded male friend at the North Bondi RSL last Saturday.

With her two-year-old son Hunter sitting on her lap, Jacenko smiled as she relaxed in a sleeveless black dress and sandals as a friend brought the pair drinks from the bar on the summery afternoon.

Four days later, Jacenko’s husband appeared in prison greens via video link from Cooma Correctional Centre where he is almost four months into the minimum 12-month sentence he hopes to have reduced.

When asked for comment about the photograph with her male friend, Jacenko politely declined.

“Thank you for letting me know and giving me the opportunity to respond,” Jacenko told news.com.au.

“At this time I won’t be making any comment.”

Jacenko has been photographed once visiting Curtis at Cooma prison, arriving solo via private jet to Cooma airport without the couple’s children, Hunter and Pixie, 5.

The 35-year-old uber publicist, who recently had surgery for breast cancer, was photographed out last week with her ex-boyfriend, millionaire property developer Nabil Gazal.

Jacenko appeared to be relaxed and smiling and not wearing her wedding ring as she and Gazal strolled along a street in exclusive Double Bay.

While Jacenko did not attend her white collar criminal husband’s hearing in the NSW Court of Criminal Appeal, his parents were present.

Curtis’ mother Angela and father Nick, a former Macquarie banker and mining resources investor, attended the three-hour appeal by top Sydney silk, Bret Walker SC.

Jacenko did attend every day of Curtis’ three-week trial this year which ended in his conviction for conspiracy to insider trading

Wearing a different, mostly black designer outfit each day, she attracted maximum media attention.

But Jacenko’s pre-sentencing submission, in which she begged that Curtis be spared a custodial sentence, did not impress Justice Lucy McCallum.

Jacenko argued that as she was “the face of the business” and “I work long hours” at her Sweaty Betty luxury PR firm, this left Curtis the children’s major organiser.

“He is generally the one who is home to ensure that they have dinner, are bathed and put to bed,” Jacenko said in a three-page statement.

“Additionally, it is often the case that Pixie and Hunter are looked after by Oli alone on weekends as my job involves weekend work for various client events.”
Justice McCallum found that up until his guilty verdict, Curtis had expressed “no contrition to any degree whatsoever” for his crimes.

She said he had quickly settled what he owed from the illegal trading, by paying back $1.43 million to the Australian Federal Police before his sentencing.

But she was not convinced that his decision to repay the money showed any contrition because it was made “without admissions” to the crimes.

“In that context the forfeiture of the sum of $1.43 million without admissions between verdict and sentence may be regarded as cynical,” she said.

During Curtis’ trial, his former school friend and trading partner John Hartman said the pair used the $1.4 million profit to rent a beachfront apartment in Bondi, buy a Mini Cooper and a Ducati motorcycle for Mr Hartman and go on a luxury holiday in Las Vegas and Whistler.

Curtis had pleaded not guilty. He returned the $1.4 million profit to the Australian Federal Police before his sentencing hearing, without admission of guilt.

In 2014, Curtis and Jacenko sold their luxury Woollahra home for $8.8 million, but a court order prevented him from touching his half of the profit.
