NRL player Tyrone May will learn his fate in January after pleading guilty to charges relating to a sex tape that was recorded without consent.

23-year-old May, a utility with the Penrith Panthers, pleaded guilty to four charges against him, including ‘intentionally recording an intimate image without consent’.

May was facing a total of eight charges relating to the sex tape scandal that engulfed Penrith’s 2019 pre-season, but prosecutors have dropped four of them.

Penrith coach Ivan Cleary was in court today to support May.

May missed the entire 2019 NRL season after being stood down following the charges being laid earlier this year.

He will be sentenced on January 31.
