Liam Jurrah has been committed to stand trial in the Supreme Court on a charge of assault causing serious harm, as well as three further counts of assault on three separate victims.
This is also the case for his co-accused, Christopher Walker and Josiah Fry.
Mr Walker's lawyer, Tania Collins, told the court Mr Walker will be pleading guilty to the 'cause serious harm' charge.
Mr Jurrah's family and supporters in the courtroom and waiting for him in the lobby accepted the news quietly but appeared downcast.
Outside the court defence counsel Jon Tippett QC told media that moving the case from the Court of Summary Jurisdiction into the Supreme Court is "unrelated to guilt". KIERAN FINNANE reports.
