NOT one of four men who brutally bashed an 18-year-old will spend a single night in jail because of a soft sentence given earlier to one of them in the Magistrates Court.

The victim, Cale Archer, who received bruising to his brain and a disfigured bottom lip, was attacked by former Central Queensland Comets players Russell James Webber and Nathan Leslie Barraclough as well as three others, Lee James Garven, Michael Thomas Fitzgerald and Adam Wayne Harris, on February 7 last year.

Mr Archer was chased and bashed after a confrontation with the men at the McDonald's drive through in south Rockhampton when the group he was part of jumped the queue ahead of them.

Webber, Fitzgerald and Garven were originally charged with grievous bodily harm but this was reduced to assault occasioning bodily harm while in company, after Mr Archer made a full recovery from his injuries.

Yesterday during the sentencing of Webber and Garven in the Rockhampton District Court, Crown Prosecutor Joshua Phillips asked for each of them to receive a 12-month suspended jail sentence.
