Tyrone May pleads guilty to recording intimate images

Penrith five-eighth Tyrone May has pleaded guilty to four charges of intentionally recording an intimate image without consent at Parramatta Local Court on Friday.

The 23-year-old Panther had been charged after lewd videos were recorded in a Coffs Harbour motel room in February, 2018 and three months later in an apartment in the Sydney suburb of Kingswood.

The court heard the women involved in each of the videos did not consent to them being recorded and were unaware of their existence until media reports earlier this year.

May was stood down from playing duties under the NRL’s “no-fault stand down” rule following his arrest on March 5.

After making his his NRL debut for Penrith in 2017, he has played 19 matches for the club and also represented Samoa in one Test the following year. 

May will appear again in court for sentencing on January 31.
