bryan-stow-case-feb-20-sentencingFederal prosecutors are recommending that a judge sentence each of the two felons who beat Bryan Stow in a Dodger Stadium parking lot — leaving the San Francisco Giants fan with permanent brain injuries — to multiple-year prison terms for weapons possession, court papers obtained Tuesday show.

Louie Sanchez, 32, and Marvin Norwood, 34, previously pleaded guilty to one federal count each of being a felon in possession of firearms/ammunition. The charge carries a possible 10-year prison term.

Prosecutors are seeking a nearly eight-year term for Sanchez, citing an “extensive” criminal history that began when he was 16 years old. A five- year, four-month sentence is recommended for Norwood.

Although the federal weapons count does not directly involve the Stow beating, prosecutors refer to Sanchez as having been observed punching Stow “in the left side of the head without warning,” and then watching as the victim went “limp and hit the pavement, banging his head on the ground,” before kicking him “three separate times with full force,” according to the government’s sentencing position papers.

U.S. District Judge Fernando M. Olguin set May 7 for sentencing.

Sanchez was previously sentenced to eight years in state prison after pleading guilty in Los Angeles County Superior Court to a felony count of mayhem for the unprovoked 2011 attack on Stow.

His co-defendant was sentenced to four years in state prison after pleading guilty to assault causing great bodily injury for the Stow assault.

A federal grand jury indicted Sanchez and Norwood in March 2014, shortly after their guilty pleas in state court, on the firearms charge.
