Criminal Justice Quote: Baseball Thugs Sentenced

     Two California men were sentenced to prison on February 20, 2014 for their roles in the severe beating of a San Francisco Giants fan after a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2011. Marvin Norwood, 33, and Louie Sanchez, 31, were sentenced to four years and eight years respectively….

     Now brain-damaged as a result of the beating, the victim is disabled and unable to care for himself…Norwood pleaded guilty to felony assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury. Sanchez pleaded guilty to felony mayhem. In exchange for their guilty pleas, other felony charges were dropped against the defendants. Both men are from Rialto, California….
