In a story by CBS Baltimore, a 19-year-old man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison following an assault and robbery that took place in Linthicum, Maryland in February. It was determined that the man and his 15-year-old brother severely beat and robbed a 59-year-old man walking near the Linthicum light rail station. The man suffered a broken nose, eye socket and cheek bone as well as three broken vertebrae and a cracked rib.
In addition to the 10 year sentence, the 19-year-old will be on probation for five years following his release. During that time he will not be allowed to come within a mile of any light rail station, even though police never learned whether or not the man and his brother used the light rail system to get to Linthicum.
