Thomas Sewell and Jacob Hersant sentenced   Both blamed the victims outside of court Judge wished them both luck after handing down verdict Two leaders of Australian neo-Nazi movement have remained defiant, blaming ‘gay-Jewish-Communist’ lies, as they walked free from court over a violent encounter. Thomas Sewell, 30, and Jacob Hersant, 24, were spared jail in the County Court on Friday after pleading guilty to a charge of violent disorder each. The two men, both dressed in navy suits, sat relaxed in the dock chatting casually before the hearing began as nine supporters entered the courtroom. The court was told Sewell, then-leader of the European Australian Movement, and Hersant, who headed the National Socialist Network, were gathering with members of the organisations at the Cathedral Range State Park northeast of Melbourne on May 8, 2021, for a ‘camping weekend’. About 10 to 15 members of the group confronted a separate group of six friends who were staying nearby and chose to hike Mount Sugarloaf
