Former St Kilda star Stephen Milne has avoided a conviction for indecently assaulting a 19-year-old woman a decade ago, but will be forced to pay a $15,000 fine.
Three charges of raped were dropped against the 34-year-old earlier this month, before he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge of indecent assault.
The assault occurred in 2004 at the home of ex-Saints teammate Leigh Montagna.
Victorian County Court Judge Michael Bourke acknowledged that the incident was out of character and that Milne had matured since the incident.
“The evidence is highly persuasive that this offending was out of character,” Judge Bourke said in court.
“You have been the subject of public scrutiny and public abuse.
“Your family has witnessed and been distressed by this.”
