Former Hawthorn recruit Dayle Garlett will remain behind bars after losing his appeal against a prison sentence for a drug fueled crime spree.

Garlett is currently serving a four year and eight month sentence after being found guilty of over a dozen charges, including burglary, car theft and reckless driving.

The 22-year-old appealed the sentence, claiming the prison term was excessive.

However, his appeal was dismissed by the West Australian Court of Appeal on Thursday.

Garlett was drafted by the Hawks in 2013, after the gun junior footballer was overlooked by all 18 clubs in the 2012 National Draft due to concerns over his off-field behaviour.

However, in March 2014, he quit the club and returned home to WA, citing homesickness.
