Canberra fullback Jack Wighton has escaped with a two-month suspended jail sentence and a $3500 fine for his drunken, violent and urine-soaked rampage in February.

The 25-year-old fullback pleaded guilty in June to two charges of assault occasioning bodily harm, three counts of common assault and one charge of public urination.

The 130 game veteran fronted ACT Magistrates Court today for sentencing and was convicted on the charges and given a 12-month good behaviour bond.

CCTV footage from the night of February 3 was presented to the court and has since been made public, showing Wighton assault five people in three different incidents.


With urine patches visible on his pants, Wighton approaches a group of three men and an altercation follows in which he appears to repeatedly punch and shove the three men.

In an earlier incident, Wighton also shoves, punched and headbutts a man and aggressively pushes another who appears to be a fan simply wanting a handshake.

A regretful Wighton read an apology to media assembled outside court following his sentencing.

"I'd also like to take the opportunity to apologise to the victims of the incident for any pain I may have caused them and their families," he said.

"There are no excuses for my behaviour. I want to let them know that I'm truly sorry for what happened that night."

Wighton's sentencing comes after he was dealt with by the NRL earlier this year.

After reviewing the CCTV footage, the game's governing body moved to overrule the Raiders who initially handed down a six match suspension, before the NRL increased the ban to 10 games and ended his season.

Wighton was also fined $30,000, and Raiders officials were unsuccessful in their appeal to have the penalty reduced.
