Rebels bikies walk away laughing after trials end in not guilty

THEY were supposed to be the trials that gutted the Rebels bikie gang and put a swag of its members ­behind bars.

Instead, all four accused Rebels were acquitted in one case, the eight accused were found not guilty in the other and a prominent bikie will get a payout, which could be well into the six figures, from taxpayers to cover his legal costs.

Both marathon cases involved ­Rebels bikies on trial for allegedly shooting, beating and torturing ­fellow members — but it seems the jury did not believe the witnesses.

Rishaad Christian told the court he was the sergeant of arms of the Rebels Penrith chapter at the time he was shot.

Rebels motorcycle gang constitution called 'juvenile' and 'poorly written' by NT justice

The Rebels bikie gang constitution has been made public by a Northern Territory justice, who slammed it as "juvenile, sexist" and "poorly written".

Justice Jenny Blokland sentenced sergeant-at-arms Shannon Althouse, 31 and president Andrew Summerfield, 24, on Wednesday to a collective 15 years in jail for ordering a brutal reprisal attack with hatchets and machetes on the wrong man, to which they pleaded guilty.

The attack left the unintended victim with serious injuries and psychological damage akin to post traumatic stress disorder, the court heard.

The constitution was tendered to the NT's Supreme Court in Darwin during their sentencing hearing, during which Justice Blokland said the constitution had been submitted to the court as evidence.

Two senior members of Darwin chapter of Rebels outlaw motorcycle club sentenced to seven years’ jail for ordering axe attack

TWO senior members of the Darwin chapter of the Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang have been sentenced to seven years’ jail for ordering a revenge axe attack on a rival.

President Andy Summerfield, 24, and sergeant-at-arms Shannon Althouse, 31, pleaded guilty to giving the order to attack Tyrone Kerslake on October 5 last year.

But in a case of mistaken identity, their underlings targeted Kerslake’s flatmate Bradley Jewell instead.

In a victim impact statement Justice Jenny Blokland read from during sentencing, Mr Jewell said the beating – which resulted in wounds including a chipped vertebrae and multiple skull fractures – left him experiencing frequent flashbacks and “physically incapable of functioning as he did before the attack”.

“He talks about the excruciating pain, that he just wanted to pass out during the attack, he talks about the blood and that he was so scared he thought he was going to die,” she said.

Darwin Rebels outlaw bikie club president Andy Summerfield and Shannon Althouse plead guilty to ordering armed reprisal attack

THE baby-faced president and tattoo-covered sergeant-at-arms of the Darwin chapter of the Rebels bikie gang pleaded guilty on Tuesday to ordering club minions to take part in a brutal reprisal attack.

President Andy Summerfield and sergeant-at-arms Shannon Althouse pleaded guilty to ordering an attack on Tyrone Kerslake on October 5 last year, only for their underlings to mistakenly carry out the attack on Kerslake’s flatmate.

Crown Prosecutor David Morters told the Supreme Court the duo were spotted on security cameras at Bunnings and Mitchell’s Outdoors buying hatchets, machetes and balaclavas on the day of the attack.

A police raid on the pair’s house at Essington Ave, Gray, found burnt remnants of balaclavas, a bloody axe with Summerfield’s DNA on it and Rebels paraphernalia.
