A bikie who was among three arrested for drinking together at a pub north of Brisbane has been granted bail.
A bikie arrested for allegedly drinking with two others in a pub north of Brisbane has been granted bail.
Phillip “Crow” Palmer was arrested along with his girlfriend and another man over the alleged meeting at the Dayboro Crown Hotel on December 19.
They were charged under the Queensland government’s anti-bikie laws that prohibit more than two members or associates of a declared criminal organisation gathering in public.
Palmer, 54, Sally Kuether and Ronald Germain were allegedly captured on CCTV footage at the hotel wearing clothing bearing the Life and Death motorcycle club insignia.
Magistrate Wendy Cull said there seemed to be a relatively strong case against Palmer, who is also facing charges of entering a licensed premises wearing a prohibited item, keeping a python without a licence and charges related to cannabis possession.
Magistrate Cull noted Palmer had old convictions for sexual assaults and violence in company but had not committed any offences in the past 12 years.
She took into account his strong ties to the community and said he wasn’t an unacceptable risk of reoffending or failing to appear.
Kuether, a Brisbane City Council librarian, and Germain were granted bail last week.
The trio face a mandatory six months’ imprisonment if found guilty of being participants in a criminal organisation and being knowingly present in public places with two or more people are who participants.
