Men Convicted In Stow Beating Indicted On Federal Gun Charges
LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com/AP) — Two men who nearly beat San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow to death outside Dodger Stadium
have been indicted on federal gun possession charges, according to a court document.
Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez, who both pleaded guilty last month to felony assault charges stemming from the Stow beating, now face one count each of being a felon in possession of firearms/ammunition after authorities say they found assault-style rifles and other guns at Norwood’s home.
The charge carries a maximum 10-year federal prison sentence upon conviction. Federal prosecutors in Los Angeles filed an early version of the charge against the men last May.
In February, U.S. Magistrate Judge Frederick Mumm stopped the pending release of Marvin Norwood, who was sentenced last month to four years in prison for the beating of Bryan Stow but with credit for time served could have been freed soon, the Associated Press reported.
According to City News Service, Mumm said Norwood was a danger to the community and a flight risk and should be held pending trial.
Norwood, 33, pleaded guilty to felony assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury and was sentenced to four years, which he already served while in custody.
Sanchez, 31, pleaded guilty to one felony count of mayhem. He was sentenced to eight years in state prison by Judge George Lomeli, but will likely serve only five.
