Visa with criminal record and gang related

I have a friend in the UK wishing to immigrate to Australia. He has a criminal record and served less than 12 mths for a violent crime. The crime involved football hooliganism and he has had a clean record since being released over 4 yrs ago. He is no longer associating with his past criminal associates. Is there any hope of him being able to get a Visa?

Rejections are more or less guaranteed where one has received a custodial sentence of 12 months or more as a result of a conviction and it could depend on what he was sentenced to more so than what he served if that was less with time remitted etc.
A sentence of less than 12 months will also no doubt be reviewed too and in this case it would be the severity of the violent crime that would be looked at.
Obviously there are also all the other eligibility requirements depending on what type of visa he would consider.
