The two men, Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez, who attacked Bryan Stow in a Dodger Stadium parking lot in 2011 are going to prison for four and eight years, respectively, according to reports from CBS News. The two men entered guilty pleas and were sentenced on Thursday morning.
Norwood pleaded guilty on one count of assault likely to produce great bodily injury and Sanchez did so on one count of mayhem that disabled and disfigured the victim. All other charges were dropped as a result of the agreement.
Members of Stow's family spoke prior to the sentencing, including his father, David, who told the defendants that "they years you cretins spend in prison is what you deserve." Judge George Lomeli shared David Stow's sentiments, calling the defendant a "coward," and saying:
You show no remorse whatsoever, no remorse to the family and that is also something that is also unfortunate.
Stow was leaving the park after taking in Opening Day when he, then a 42-year-old paramedic, was beaten and suffered brain damage. He requires round-the-clock care and is permanently disabled. The longtime Giants fan spent two years in hospitals and rehabilitation centers before coming home last year.
