They each pleaded guilty to one count of importing a commercial quantity of a border controlled drug.

Prosecutors dropped a second charge against each of them.

Mannella was charged in April after being accused of importing a massive shipment of drugs into Australia on behalf of Marrogi’s gang in February. He was also charged in April.
