After nearly three years, justice is finally done in the Bryan Stow case:
Defendant Marvin Norwood pleaded guilty to one count of assault likely to produce great bodily injury. Co-defendant Louie Sanchez, saying he kicked and punched Stow, pleaded guilty to one count of mayhem that disabled and disfigured the victim. Both were to be sentenced after a judge heard victim impact statements.
Neither is likely to receive a sentence as seems fitting given the damage they did to Stow’s life. Stow remains severely disabled and in need of constant medical attention as the result of the attack, which took place outside of Dodger Stadium.
Norwood and Sanchez’s guilty plea came after they were confronted with jailhouse recordings of them admitting to the crime.
