WA bikies win appeal over bashing

Three Rebels bikies who admitted to a baseball bat attack on a man in a car ownership dispute in Perth have won an appeal against the length of their jail sentences.

Paul Sjahrir Marsandi, Jason Paul Gastarov and Christopher Mark Allen bashed 27-year-old Robin Christopher Yarran at a Port Kennedy car park in font of his pregnant partner in June 2014.

Mr Yarran required surgery for several injuries and a metal plate was placed in his head.

The offenders were sentenced in the WA District Court earlier this year, but took their case to the WA Court of Appeal, successfully arguing their respective jail terms were manifestly excessive.

Marsandi, aged 28 at the time of the crime, had his jail term reduced on Tuesday from six years and four months to five years.

Gastarov, then aged 38, had his sentence cut from three-and-a-half years to two years and four months.

Allen, then aged 32, had his term slashed from two years and 10 months to 20 months behind bars.
