    A Mongrel Mob Member who used a golf club to attack a rival gangster at a KFC car park in Hastings, has had his sentence overturned

    A Mongrel Mob Member who used a golf club to attack a rival gangster at a KFC car park in Hastings, has had his sentence overturned


    Vinnie Herewini, the leader of the Mongrel Mob in Flaxmere, was jailed for three and half years in January, on aggravated robbery and weapon assault charges.

    Open Justice reports the sentence was set aside, at a hearing at the Court of Appeal.

    His lawyer claimed trial miscarried on six grounds, including that a recording of the attack played to the jury, included audio of a distraught female, making it unfairly prejudicial.

    A retrial on the weapon charge will happen, but the challenge against the aggravated robbery charge has been dismissed.
