A Melbourne magistrate has sided with the victim and found Australian actress Maggie Kirkpatrick guilty of indecently assaulting a teenage psychiatric patient in 1984.
The 78-year-old Kirkpatrick will now be assessed for a Community Corrections Order instead of a prison term over two counts of indecent assault and one count of committing an act of gross indecency with a person under 16.
