Woman faces court accused of leaking lewd tape of ex-AFL star
A woman has appeared in court for the first time after being accused of filming and leaking a raunchy video of former AFL player Dane Swan.
Georgia May Gibson, from South Australia, faced Melbourne Magistrates Court today charged with filming an intimate video of Swan in 2017 and intentionally sharing the footage with another person.
The 21-year-old was charged in mid-2018 after footage surfaced online allegedly showing the former Collingwood star.
In Victoria, it is illegal to share an intimate or sexual image of a person if they did not agree to it.
The short clip appears to show Swan kissing a woman who films his naked body.
It was allegedly taken on June 26 during the 2017 AFL season, while Swan was in a long-term relationship with his partner Taylor Wilson.
Gibson, from the Adelaide Hills town of Meadows, did not speak during the brief hearing.
Her case was adjourned to March after her lawyer said the matter should be moved to the sex offences list "due to the nature of the charges".
The court released documents which detail the alleged two offences, accusing Gibson of visually capturing Swan "in a manner of up-skirting" and "intentionally" distributing the video to someone other than the ex-Magpie.
Swan, 34, is considered one of Collingwood's greatest midfielders, winning a Brownlow Medal in 2011 and a premiership in 2010 in a 258-game AFL career.
The hard-running star retired in 2016 after badly injuring his foot during a round-one clash with Sydney.
Gibson is due to return to court on March 14.
