Men who beat Giants fan at Dodger park guilty of gun crime

LOS ANGELES (AP)—The two men who savagely beat a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium face up to 10 years in federal prison on firearms convictions.

City News Service said Louie Sanchez pleaded guilty Thursday in Los Angeles federal court to being a felon in possession of firearms.

Sanchez’s partner in crime, Marvin Norwood, pleaded guilty to an identical charge a week ago. They face sentencing May 7.

The duo was previously sentenced to state prison for the 2011 opening day attack that left Bryan Stow with permanent brain damage.

Police investigating the beating found semi-automatic rifles, other weapons and ammunition during a search of Norwood’s home. Sanchez, 32, and Norwood, 34, had prior felony convictions in San Bernardino County.

Both men are in federal custody.
