According to a New York judge in White Plains sentenced the fourth assailant in a gang attack on an Ecuadorian man to 11 years in prison on Wednesday July 27th. On March 15, 2010 Julio Serrano was beaten by four people, which put him in a coma for three weeks. Jarron Slight, one of the aggressors, was sentenced to eight years after a plea agreement with the Prosecutor’s office. However, the agreement was hinged upon no further incidents until the sentence hearing. Officials say this past October, Slight attacked a correctional guard adding three years onto his sentence. The judge, Richard Molea, also issued an order of protection for Julio Serrano and his family until July 27, 2030. The National Migrant Secretary of Ecuador, the governments’ representative for the hearing says the hearing sets a precedent for eliminating further hate crimes.Read Article
