But Magistrate Jon Klestadt wasn’t convinced, addressing Ward in the courtroom.

“If President Trump can get away with abusing or making foul comments about females.... and call it locker room banter, I would have thought it demonstrates it's all about context... what's regarded as obscene in one place will not be regarded as obscene in another," he said.

Despite trying to justify his actions, the unemployed offender pleaded guilty to the charge.

The Magistrate sentenced him to a 12-month good behaviour bond.

As he left court, he didn’t respond to questions about whether he regretted his actions.

Aside from threatening to charge 9NEWS with harassment, the only comment he made was: "Read the court transcript. I won."
