Teen Sentenced to 15 Years for Fatal Beating
NEW JERSEY 101.5
A youth who admitted his role in the unprovoked fatal beating of a New Jersey father was sentenced Tuesday to 15 years in state prison.
Julian Daley of Old Bridge also received five years for an unrelated burglary charge. But that will run concurrent to the term the 19-year-old got for the 2010 attack on Divyendu Sinha, who was beaten as he walked with his wife and two sons in Old Bridge.
Daley must serve nearly 13 years before he becomes eligible for parole. He pleaded guilty in February to aggravated manslaughter and conspiracy to commit aggravated assault.
Sinha died three days. His wife and sons were not seriously injured in the attack.
Two of the teens were acquitted in September of the major charges in connection with the fatal beating, but convicted of simple assault. They were sentenced last month to six months each in the county jail.
Another youth pleaded guilty in July to aggravated manslaughter and was sentenced last month to seven years in prison.
The fifth was acquitted of murder and aggravated manslaughter last year, but jurors could not reach a verdict on a manslaughter count he faced. He eventually pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit aggravated assault as part of plea bargain to resolve the manslaughter charge. He's due to be sentenced Friday.
