A YOUNG man has been given a suspended jail term for a drunken attack on a stranger in a Hobart nightclub.

Matthew Roland Almond, 18, of Rokeby, pleaded guilty to a charge of assault over the incident at Syrup on July 29 last year.

Almond and a friend were sitting at one end of a couch in the nightclub when his friend punched a man sitting at the other end of the couch.

When the pair fell on to the couch, Almond joined in and punched the victim about 14 times to the head.

Justice Helen Wood said the attack was recorded by CCTV cameras inside the venue.

"Mr Almond struck a man who was already down, a man who had already been the victim of an unwarranted assault," the judge said.

Justice Wood said the victim suffered a fractured eye socket, had been forced to take three weeks off work to recover from the injuries and continued to suffer migraines brought on by the attack.

Almond, who was drunk at the time of the attack, was extremely remorseful but could not remember his actions or their motivation.

He described his behaviour as "disgusting" and said he had dramatically reduced his alcohol intake since the incident.

Justice Wood sentenced Almond to nine months' jail but suspended the sentence for two years on the condition Almond not commit an offence punishable by imprisonment.

She also ordered him to perform 182 hours of community service.
