Kirin J Callinan has avoided conviction in court today.

According to Hack, the Sydney artist plead guilty but received no conviction after exposing himself on the red carpet of the 2017 ARIA Awards; instead, he has been given a 12 month good behaviour bond.

Callinan's lawyer, Christian Hearn, told the court the 32-year-old musician was asked to lift up the kilt he wore to the ceremony. 

"He was wearing a kilt and there were some among the media group who were making light of the fact he was wearing a kilt and suggested he lift his kilt. It was momentary, it was up and down and at least one camera caught that," Hearn said.

"Why did he do it? He did it as an error of judgement, he did it in a jovial mood, he didn’t do it to shock anyone."

Hearn added that the incident has damaged Callinan's reputation, which also was one of the reasons he was pulled from this month's Laneway Festival line-up.

"There's been a lot of media commentary on this both ways but much of that has been critical," Hearn said.

"Secondly he’s been impacted in a financial sense… there have been a number of events to participate in that he no longer can.

"He was in large part returning to Australia to play the Laneway festival and he was set to play a number of locations around the country with that but Laneway removed him from the lineup and that’s had a very large financial consequence."

It has been reported that Crowded House frontman Neil Finn wrote a character statement in support of Callinan.

"Your referee Neil Finn has described you as a person with a penchant for mischief and exhibitionism, isn’t that why you esposed your penis?" Chief Magistrate Christopher O'Brien asked Callinan.

Kirin J Callinan will reportedly plead guilty in court today after he allegedly exposed himself on the red carpet at last year's ARIA Awards. 

Triple j Hack reporter, Avani Dias, tweeted that the Sydney artist's lawyer told the court he will plead guilty when he arrives at Downing Centre later today.
