Finks motorcycle gang members have been jailed for
threatening to kill a man and his brother unless
they paid $100 thousand.
The court heard Finks
members Jason Lee Kingston and Travis John Lemm
threatened to shoot a man and his brother in the
head if they did not pay the money.
The court was told the
victim was serving a sentence at Mobilong jail at
the same time as Kingston, and agreed to pay
Kingston $30 thousand for protection.
After they were
released, Lemm threatened to kill the victim and
increased the payment to $100 thousand.
Judge Dean Clayton
said the threats were terrifying and had a
long-lasting effect on the victim and his family.
Kingston was set a
non-parole period of 14 months, while Lemm will
spend at least three years and three months in jail
for blackmail and a drug trafficking offence.
