Two Men Sentenced To Prison For The Beating Of A Giants Fan
Los Angeles, California (CNN) Two California men were sentenced to prison Thursday for the beating of a San Francisco Giants fan after a 2011 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
That beating left Bryan Stow with a severe brain injury.
Marvin Norwood pleaded guilty to felony assault and Louie Sanchez pleaded guilty to felony mayhem.
Norwood was sentenced to four years and Sanchez was sentenced to eight years in prison.
During the sentencing, the judge had harsh criticism for their behavior.
"It was obvious that he was incapacitated, but yet you continued to hit him on the head and kick him on the head, which tells me, and I can only reach one conclusion from that, that you're complete cowards. Even now with your smirks, I'm talking about Mister Sanchez, not so much about Mister Norwood. You show no remorse. No remorse to the family here, and that is something that is also unfortunate," said George G. Lomeli, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge.
In exchange for their guilty pleas, the other felony charges against Norwood and Sanchez were dropped.
