He was also ordered to complete 20 rehabilitation activity requirement, nine months of drugs rehab and 120 hours of unpaid work after admitting being involved in supplying drugs by Chelmsford Crown Court on October 31.
Hunt was arrested on April 13 when a vehicle he was in with Stacy Friend, 41, of Dorset Close, Chelmsford was stopped by police in Park Avenue, Chelmsford. Officers found 76 wraps of drugs inside a compartment in the car.
Friend had been arrested for a similar incident on April 3 when police seized 200 wraps of class A drugs, along with cash and a phone in a vehicle she was in with another man.
Following Friend's arrest she was released under investigation and was arrested 10 days later while with Hunt.
She was jailed for two and a half years.
