2:40 pm on 4 December 2011

The Australian teenager convicted of marijuana possession in Indonesia is due to be released from detention in Bali on Sunday.

The ABC reports he will be deported back to Australia after serving his two month sentence.

The 14-year-old was arrested in early October in Bali's Kuta district for possessing a small amount of marijuana.

Prosecutors asked the judge to give him three months in prison, but he was sentenced to two months.

With the time he's already spent behind bars he's due for release on Sunday.

Once the paperwork has been completed for his release he will be deported back to Australia.
