Man Who Beat Giants Fan Bryan Stow Gets Additional 3 Years On Weapons Conviction

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man who seriously beat Giants fan Bryan Stow outside Dodger Stadium will be spend three more years in prison for a federal weapons conviction.

Louie Sanchez was sentenced Thursday to six years in federal prison for possessing weapons as a felon.

Judge Fernando Olguin ordered the sentence to take effect immediately, so he'll serve half of the sentence while finishing his eight-year term for the 2011 opening day Stow beating.

Prosecutors had sought an additional eight-year federal prison sentence, while defense lawyers asked for an additional year in custody.

Sanchez apologized to society and his family.

Police investigating the beating of Stow found semi-automatic rifles, other weapons and ammunition belonging to Sanchez. He was barred from possessing guns because of past felony convictions.
