Alfie Meadows, Colin Goff, Zac King, Vishnu Wood and Jack Locke were accused of violent disorder on the anti-fees demonstration outside parliament on 9 December 2010.

The jury was unable to reach a majority verdict in the cases of Alfie Meadows and Zac King. They could now face a retrial.

Colin Goff, Vishnu Wood and Jack Locke were all acquitted of violent disorder.

Vishnu Wood and Jack Locke also faced a charge of arson. Vishnu Wood was acquitted, while Jack Locke was found guilty of this charge.

Jack will be sentenced in the coming weeks.
