Los Angeles, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Two men have pleaded guilty to the 2011 beating of San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow outside Dodger Stadium.

Marvin Norwood and Louie Sanchez admitted guilt in the March 31, 2011 incident that left Stow disabled.

Norwood and Sanchez faced charges of assault and battery, mayhem and inflicting great bodily injury.

As part of the plea agreement, Norwood was sentenced to four years in state prison on one count of assault. Sanchez received an eight-year prison sentence on a charge of mayhem.

"We are pleased that the culpable parties have finally accepted responsibility for their actions and have been sentenced for their crimes," the Dodgers said in a statement.

Stow, now 44 years old from northern California, was critically injured in the brutal attack after the 2011 season-opener between the Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers. He sustained brain damage and is permanently disabled.
