Former NRL player gets suspended sentence for assault

Julian Demonde Troy pleaded guilty in the Northern Territory Supreme court to aggravated assault.

The court heard Troy punched the victim, causing him to fall backwards on the pavement, striking his head on the curb.

Then he grabbed the victim by the collar and punched him in the face four times, stood up and kicked him in the head.

The victim had teeth knocked out, suffered head lacerations, a broken jaw and a broken cheek.

Justice Stephen Southwood said it was a cowardly attack and an excessive over-reaction.

Troy was a first offender and had apologised for the attack.

As part of the sentence, he spent five hours in the court cells today.

Troy has worked as a lawyer since playing rugby league with the Parramatta Eels in the 1990s.

His lawyer said it was unlikely Troy would be able to practice law again.
