Johannesburg - Wits utility player Bryce Moon has escaped a jail sentence after his sentencing for culpable homicide on Monday.

According to the supersport.com website, the former Bafana Bafana star was handed a R60 000 fine, or two months in prison, and had his driving licence suspended for six months.

Moon drove into pedestrian Mavis Ncube after leaving a Confederations Cup party with Bafana team-mates in 2009.

The magistrate found that he was speeding at the time of the accident, but that he did not intend to cause harm to his victim.

The charges against him were initially dropped in April 2010, but then reinstated in January the following year.

The 27-year-old has spent this season at Wits, having also played for SuperSport United and Lamontville Golden Arrows since returning from Panathinaikos in Greece in 2010.

He made the last of his 17 appearances for Bafana against Namibia in March 2010.
