Teenage girl admits to lying about having sex, taking drugs with AFL agent

June 9, 2011 - Canberra

A 17-year-old girl who claimed she had sex and took drugs with a leading Australian Football League (AFL) player agent Ricky Nixon, has now said she made it all up.

Kim Duthie, dubbed the "St Kilda Schoolgirl", has changed her story in a statement to the AFL Players' Association (AFLPA), saying her claims regarding Nixon were 'completely untrue,' The Telegraph reports.

Duthie, in her statement, also claimed she was affected by drugs when she spoke to AFLPA-commissioned barrister David Galbally about the nature of her relationship with Nixon.

Nixon denied manipulating the troubled 17-year-old into retracting her statement and is adamant he will sue the AFLPA.

Nixon said Duthie needed to "move forward" with her life, but at the same time commended her for revealing non-truths.

"I'm pleased she has finally decided to make some important decisions in her life and she now needs to move forward. I'm also pleased that she has made these declarations to the AFLPA," said Nixon.

The AFLPA confirmed it had received a statement claiming false evidence was given.

"We acknowledge the AFL Players Association has received correspondence from a person involved in the investigation into former player agent Ricky Nixon, claiming the person gave false evidence to the inquiry," it said.

"We have informed this person that, in making its final decision, the board did not specifically rely on the statements the person has now retracted," said the statement.

"As such, the claims do not change the resolution made by the board in relation to the conduct of Ricky Nixon, which was found to be in breach of the Agent Accreditation Regulations," it added.
