Ex-bikie Jacques Teamo released to fight jail sentence

THE FORMER-bikie boss at the centre of some of the Glitter Strip's most infamous crimes has launched an appeal against a court's decision after pleading guilty to bashing a housemate.

Ex-Bandidos enforcer Jacques Vetea Teamo, 48, was this month convicted for using "standover tactics" to bash a man who allowed him to stay at his house as repayment of a debt of about $3000.

On September 8, Teamo was given an 18-month head sentence and would have been eligible for parole in December after pleading guilty to common assault in the Southport Magistrates Court.

He was ordered to also pay $500 in compensation. Teamo was not punished for a trespass charge he also pleaded guilty to.

Five days later he appealed the conviction and the sentence on the basis it was manifestly excessive.

Teamo was granted bail while awaiting the outcome of the appeal, which is not expected until early next year.
