LOS ANGELES (AP) - Two men have pleaded guilty to the 2011 beating at Dodger Stadium that left San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow brain damaged and disabled and were immediately sentenced.
Superior Court Judge George Lomeli told Louis Sanchez and Marvin Norwood they were cowards and snapped at Sanchez for smirking as members of Stow's family wept.
Sanchez acknowledging he kicked and punched Stow. He was sentenced to eight years in prison with credit for time served.
Norwood was sentenced to four years. His credit for time already in custody appeared to account for at least the majority of that term. Deputy District Attorney Michele Hanisee said Norwood could be released immediately.
Federal authorities have charged both men with weapons possession charges that could send them to federal prison for an additional 10 years.
