2 Admit Guilt in Dodger Stadium Giants Fan Attack

Posted: Updated:

Two men have pleaded guilty in Los Angeles to a 2011 beating at Dodger Stadium that left San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow brain damaged and disabled. 
 
Defendants Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez entered their pleas Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Judge George Lomeli excoriated smirking convict Louie Sanchez and handed him an eight-year state prison term Thursday, with some credit for time served.
 
Co-defendant Marvin Norwood received a four-year sentence. He also received credit for time already spent in custody and it was unclear if he would be immediately released.

Stow, a 45-year-old paramedic from Santa Cruz, was beaten in a parking lot after 2011's opening day game between the Giants and Dodgers. He suffered brain damage and is permanently disabled, requiring 24-hour-a-day care.
 
The beating prompted increased security and heightened concerns over fan violence at sports venues around the country.   (AP)
