A would-be young bikie who was set on fire with a blowtorch by a fake Bandidos boss has told his attacker he hopes his cellmates treat him 'right' in prison.
Callan Stuart Murray, 28, was sentenced to 10 and a half years behind bars for the barbaric assault of Brodie McDougal, 22, who he bashed with a baseball bat, doused with petrol and set alight at Mandurah, south of Perth, on September 16, 2019.
Mr McDougal suffered horrific burns to his chest and head and spent three weeks in intensive care.
He also underwent excruciating skin grafts, spent a year recovering, was left unable to work and suffered psychological damage, the West Australian reported.
Murray pleaded guilty to a charge of grievous bodily harm with intent, while a deprivation of liberty charge was dropped.Insurance Loans Mortgage Attorney Credit Lawyer
