The teen at the center of a sex tape scandal with Broncos star Kotoni Staggs has evaded conviction for posting the athlete’s explicit video.
McKenzie defense attorney Lorraine Robinson sensationally told the court that the 18-year-old never intended the private video sent to a trusted friend who then shared it on social media to become a public sex scandal.
The Brisbane teenage girl was fashionably dressed and carried a Louis Vuitton handbag for her Friday appearance in Brisbane Magistrates Court
She was charged with posting the video in August after Staggs complained to police when the file was circulated online.
Newstead’s Robinson pleaded guilty to distributing prohibited visual recordings.The charges have a maximum of three years in prison under Queensland law.
Prosecutor Sergeant Henri Rantala told the court that Robinson and Staggs, 21, had a consensual date on June 15 after the couple started chatting on Instagram.
Staggs agreed to have Robinson record footage of their encounter, provided it stayed between the two.
The couple broke up and didn’t meet again, but Robinson texted Staggs several times over the next several months, including a clip of the video.
Sgt. Rantala said the video appeared on social media platforms from August 4 and was distributed to other sports clubs without Staggs’ consent.
“It received attention both at home and abroad,” said Sgt Rantala.
“The victim indicated that the distribution of the video resulted in personal embarrassment and persistent harassment, as well as professional impact on his public brand and potential sponsorship opportunities.”
Judge Tina Previtera fined Robinson $ 600 and recorded no conviction.
“You did not know at the time of contact with the victim that he was a professional footballer,” said Magistrate Previtera.
“I hope this teaches you and anyone else involved in this type of social media behavior that it is extremely destructive.”
She took into account her early admission of guilt, age, and lack of criminal history.
Robinson’s defense attorney Jason Jacobson told the court that his client was not responsible for sharing the video. He said it was sent to a friend who circulated the file.
“She learned a hard lesson that these things shouldn’t be distributed at all,” said Jacobson.
The footage resulted in Staggs being investigated by the NRL’s Integrity Unit, which contributed to a detrimental year for the Queensland team that was marked by frequent casualties and harmful player scandals.
The 21-year-old Staggs has been cleared of any wrongdoing.
Last week he told the courier post that he was “embarrassed” about the ordeal.
“I didn’t want my family to see it, that was the only thing I was worried about. I didn’t really want to tell them, but I had to, ”Staggs said.
“You took it really well. They stayed by my side. You had my back through everything. I was surprised how well they took it and it made me feel a little better.
“There are always ups and downs. You learn from your mistakes. ”
