A Griffith teenager who failed to avoid a conviction over his role in a Dean Street brawl has appealed his sentence.
Mitchell Jack Irvin was handed a 12-month community corrections order on an affray charge over the March 21 incident.
That came after his lawyer, Stephen Stanton, tried to argue that Irvin's role in the fight did not justify a conviction on the affray and assault charges.
Irvin was slapped with a $300 fine for the assault.
A hearing for the appeal will go before Judge Sean Grant in the District Court at Griffith on Tuesday.
Albury Local Court previously heard how CCTV footage outside the Albion Hotel had captured Irvin wildly swinging punches during the brawl.
Mr Stanton argued before magistrate Miranda Moody - and repeated the same argument several times - that 19 was too young for someone to be saddled with a conviction for life.
He further argued that Irvin was caught up in the moment on the night and that his actions were simply him trying to defend a friend.
That friend was earlier convicted on affray and assault occasioning actual bodily harm charges, fined $1000 and placed on a 12-month community corrections order.
Mr Stanton's argument failed to sway Ms Moody, who said Irvin had to be convicted because his actions were "too serious".
"It's an ugly scene, there's no doubt about it," she said.
"We've watched the video in court today with sentence and I'm sure it troubles him as much as it troubles me to see such wanton violence on our streets."
