Two Queensland men have received jail sentences for their role in a brawl involving Bandidos Motorcycle Club members and off-police officers in Echuca last year.
Matthew Peter Cross, 27, and Robert Hankinson, 32, pleaded guilty in Echuca Magistrates Court on Monday to assault charges stemming from violence between bikies and Melbourne-based Critical Incident Response Team members at OPT nightclub on April 6, 2013.
Cross, of Birkdale, was sentenced to two months’ imprisonment for intentionally causing injury and two counts of recklessly causing injury to three victims.
Magistrate Richard Wright said if it hadn’t been for his guilty plea, Cross would have received four months in jail.
Hankinson, of Crestmead, was given one month imprisonment, wholly suspended for six months, for unlawful assault and assault by kicking to two victims.
The court heard Cross, represented by Melbourne barrister Steve Pica, had three prior assault matters, while Hankinson, represented by solicitor Phillip Bloeman, had a limited history.
Both have resigned from the Bandidos.
