Sydney Roosters NRL player Joseph "BJ" Leilua has been given a one-year good behaviour bond for sending a naked photo of his ex-girlfriend to her brother and her best friend.
Earlier on Wednesday, Leilua was cleared of assaulting the woman at a South Sydney hotel.
However, Downing Centre Local Court magistrate Carolyn Barkell found Leilua guilty of using an iPhone in an offensive way.
Leilua had sent the naked photo of Cee-Jay Silbery to her brother and her best friend after he heard she was seeing another man.
The offence carries a maximum sentence of three years in prison.
Magistrate Barkell told the court the photograph was clearly offensive.
"The accused, angered at what he thought was his girlfriend's unfaithfulness, sent her brother and her best friend a photograph of her genitals in order to make her sad," she said.
"It was an extraordinary hurtful thing to her brother and her best friend."
Prosecutor Rick Mansley told the court the fact that Leilua had sent the photo to a family member made "it even worse".
"In my submission what you have in front of you is grossly offensive," he said.
Leilua was dealt with under Section 19B in relation to the charge, meaning there is no conviction recorded but the incident remains on his record.
He was ordered to pay $500 for his good behaviour bond and will return to court if the 12-month bond is broken.
Earlier, Magistrate Barkell dismissed six of seven charges against Leilua, including four assault charges and two charges of breaching an AVO.
The charges related to an alleged incident involving Ms Silbery and her friend at the Allawah Hotel in Sydney's southern suburbs on May 26 this year.
Ms Silbery failed to turn up to court on Wednesday despite being subpoenaed to give evidence about the assault.
Given her absence, prosecutor Rick Mansley conceded there was not sufficient evidence to convict Leilua over the alleged assaults against her or breaches of AVOs.
