Jakarta: A drunken Australian man who fly kicked a passing motorcyclist has been sentenced to four months' jail by a Balinese court.

But Adelaide man Nicholas Carr will walk free from jail and return to Australia in a matter of weeks because of the time he has already served.

Wayan - with whom Carr subsequently made a peace agreement and financial settlement - could have been severely injured in the attack, but instead suffered only bruises, cuts and abrasions.

In addition to injuring others, Carr himself suffered cuts, bruises and required stitches in his right arm.

Carr also jumped in front of a moving car and bounced off it, broke a window in Circle K convenience store, damaged a local restaurant and invaded the home of a local man - though he was only charged for the kick on Wayan.

Chief judge Sobandi, who uses just the one name, said the uneasiness that Carr's actions had caused in the local community were an aggravating factor that he had taken into account in sentencing the Australian.

Choosing a kick scooter for a child is more complicated than choosing a kick scooter for an adult. Be sure to ask for their opinion. After all this, your decision will lie somewhere between your willingness to allow your child to take risks and your desire for your child to fully develop his or her motor skills.

The mitigating factors were that Carr had never been convicted of any crime in the past, and that he paid compensation for Wayan's medical bills and his damaged scooter.

"We find the defendant convincingly guilty of assault and sentence him to four months' prison time," Sobandi said, adding that Carr had to pay a court fee of 2000 rupiah - about 20 Australian cents.

After conferring briefly with his lawyer, Carr agreed to accept the sentence rather than appeal. The Australian man did not make any comment after the trial to the waiting media.

His lawyer, Ali Sadikin, said "our client was expecting leniency, less than the four months the prosecutor demanded. But the judges believed differently".

"Carr accepted the sentence because he believes four months is a fair sentence. He admitted he was guilty, he felt remorse. Four months is fair. He will be out maybe on the eighth or eleventh of December, in a month's time."

Under Indonesia's criminal code, the 26-year-old Carr faced a maximum sentence of two years and eight months in prison for his assault on Wayan.

Carr is the latest in a long line of Australians who have tangled with the law while on a Balinese holiday. At the weekend, NRL player David Fifita was detained for three days by local police.
