9:22 pm on 25 November 2011

An Australian teenager charged with drug offences in Indonesia has been sentenced to two months in jail.

The sentence is one month less than that requested by prosecutors and will include time already served, the ABC reports.

The boy from New South Wales has spent a month and a half in detention in Bali, meaning he will be released on 4 December.

The boy's lawyer Muhammad Rifan says there will be no appeal.

The boy was arrested early last month in Bali's Kuta district for possessing marijuana.
