9 plead guilty in recorded beating at Buffalo park
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Nine teenagers have pleaded guilty in connection with the beating of a 66-year-old city of Buffalo employee that was caught on video.
The Buffalo News reported Monday that six of the defendants face up to seven years in prison. The other three are juveniles and face up to 18 months in a juvenile delinquent facility.
The teenagers were arrested in June after the release of a cellphone video of the attack.
Erie County District Attorney Frank Sedita III says James LeGrand was trying to stop two girls from fighting when he was knocked to the ground and punched and kicked. He suffered cuts and bruises.
