Two plead guilty in the beating of Bryan Stow

An image of Dodger Stadium beating victim Bryan Stow (C) is shown on the scoreboard before a MLB National League baseball game between San Francisco Giants and St. Louis Cardinals in San Francisco, California, April 8, 2011. Stow who drove more than 300 miles from Santa Cruz to Los Angeles to watch his beloved Giants play the Dodgers on Opening Day last week, was attacked and beaten in the parking lot by two men after the game. The 42-year-old paramedic and father of two, who was apparently assaulted because he wore Giants garb, remains in a coma and listed in critical condition at a local hospital. His assailants, who were dressed in Dodgers gear, have not been caught despite a $150,000 reward. REUTERS/Beck Diefenbach (UNITED STATES - Tags: CIVIL UNREST SPORT BASEBALL)

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.
