Weekend jail for pair who beat man over phantom child porn

"Two men who viciously beat and robbed a friend after accusing him of possessing child pornography will spend their weekends in jail for the next year.

Matthew James Hood pleaded guilty in the ACT Supreme Court to aggravated robbery and property damage and was ordered to serve one year of periodic detention.

Co-offender Matthew James Burge, who also faced four charges of burglary and theft from separate incidents, pleaded guilty and was slapped with one year of periodic detention.

In February, Hood, 20, and Burge, 21, went to the man's Calwell home after drinking at a nearby club.

The court heard the trio watched television and smoked cigarettes before discussing pornography.

The complainant, a 54-year-old man, mentioned he had recently downloaded some pornography and invited the pair to view it on his laptop.

Burge did so and began accusing the older man of having images of underage girls on the computer.

A subsequent police check of the injured man's laptop computer revealed no images appearing to be child pornography.

The pair then proceeded to attack the other man, kicking him repeatedly in the head and chest. {must have been very disappointed]"
