Teenager McKenzie Lorraine Robinson was desperate when she bombarded Brisbane Broncos star Kotoni Staggs with a series of sexual propositions following their one-night stand in June.

The Brisbane Magistrates Court heard wild details surrounding the relationship between Staggs and Robinson before the 18-year-old was on Friday fined after pleading guilty to one count of distributing prohibited visual recordings.

Magistrate Tina Previtera fined Robinson $600 and did not record a conviction.

The Courier-Mail first reported the wild propositions Robinson extended to Staggs, including offers of threesomes and buying drugs.

“You can come over and have a three some (sic) with me and one of the girls later if you want,” Robinson messaged Staggs, in messages seen by The Courier-Mail.

Robinson’s series of messages included a photo of herself holding a sex toy and a proposal to “come f***”.

The pair never met in person again following their first meeting on June 15.

After the pair filmed an act of consensual sex during the meeting, Robinson was charged with distributing the illegal footage when it began to spread across the internet in August.

Earlier, Robinson’s defence lawyer sensationally told the court she never intended for the private video, which was sent to a trusted friend who then shared it across social media, to become public.

Magistrate Previtera said she hoped Robinson had learned a lesson from the ordeal.

“You did not know at the time of contact with the victim that he was a professional footballer,” Magistrate Previtera said.

“I do hope this is a lesson to you and all other people involved in this kind of behaviour on social media, that it is highly destructive.”

The magistrate took into account Robinson’s early plea of guilty, her age and lack of criminal history.

Robinson’s defence lawyer Jason Jacobson told the court his client was not responsible for sharing the video, saying it was sent to a friend who shared the file more widely.

He said Robinson, who works as a customer service officer, plans to study psychology and social work in NSW upon completing her Year 11 & 12 equivalency studies through TAFE.

“She has learned a harsh lesson that these things are not to be distributed at all,” Mr Jacobson said.

Outside court, Robinson and her lawyer silently walked off from waiting media.

The footage led to Staggs being investigated by the NRL’s integrity unit, contributing to a damaging year for the Queensland team amid frequent losses and damaging player scandals.

Staggs was cleared of any wrongdoing.

Last week he told the Courier Mail he felt “embarrassed” by the ordeal.

“I didn’t want my family to see it, that was the one thing that I was worried about. I didn’t really want to tell them but I had to,” Staggs said.

“They actually took it really well. They stuck by my side. They had my back through it all. I was surprised by how well they took it and that made me feel a bit better.

“There’s always ups and downs. You learn from your mistakes.”

A painful ACL injury in the Broncos’ final game of the season has cost Staggs his potential State of Origin debut for NSW with the Broncos star forced to go under the knife this off-season. The surgery will keep him sidelined for nine months.

It came after Blues coach Brad Fittler indicated Staggs was in line to be selected in his preliminary squad for this year’s Origin series.
