In arguing for Makuna not to be jailed, his lawyer claimed his client had now been reformed.
Mukanu pleaded guilty to more than a dozen assault and robbery charges, some of which occurred while he was already serving a community corrections order over a savage attack on strangers.
Makuna had also been engaging with his youth justice supervisors despite Melbourne's six Covid-19 lockdowns.
The alleged gang member was briefly locked-up at the time after shocking footage was released showing a mob of African youths, including Mukanu, repeatedly stomping on three men before robbing them.
He had already served 21 days in an adult jail over his latest offences.
