A man acquitted of the 1998 murder of a Sydney schoolgirl has received a jail term for possessing a knife when he walked into a police station three years ago saying he’d killed her.

But Vinzent Tarantino walked free from the NSW Supreme Court on Thursday after his three-month jail term was backdated to when he went into custody in November 2016.

The former nightclub bouncer was last week found not guilty of abducting and murdering 12-year-old Quanne Diec in 1998.

Vinzent Tarantino, who was last week acquitted of the murder of Quanne Diec, has sentenced to three months jail for carrying a knife into Surry Hills police station when he confessed to the killing in November 2016

The now 52-year-old walked into Surry Hills police station in November 2016 and told police he had abducted and killed the schoolgirl.

Tarantino also admitted he was carrying a 35-centimetre knife which he then produced.

He pleaded guilty on Thursday to possessing a knife in a public place.

Tarantino told the jury at his murder trial his confession was made falsely after he had spent almost two decades on the run from bikies.

Justice Robert Beech-Jones sentenced him to a fixed three-month jail term for the knife offence running from November 2016 to February 2017.

Tarantino walked free as his sentence was backdated to November 2016, when he entered prison. He was acquitted of Quanne's murder last week after claiming he had only confessed as he was on the run from bikies
