A Lennox Head man who seriously injured a woman in a Tamworth pub after he and his co-accused threw a two-metre couch over a balcony will spend two years in jail for the assault.
Luke Ledingham, 28, and his co-accused Joshua Timoteo, 28 from the Gold Coast, hurled the couch seven metres from the balcony of the Good Companions Hotel.
The couch hit a 42-year-old woman on the head, causing her spinal injuries. The woman continues to require medical support.
Ledingham was sentenced to two years in jail without parole by magistrate Roger Prouse of Tamworth Local Court. Timoteo was jailed for the same period but will be eligible for parole after 22 months.
