gaveldecision.jpgSam Franciscans were shocked and saddened at reports of a brutal Dolores Park robbery, beating, and stabbing that left one man seriously injured last July. Though two suspects were arrested shortly after the attack, it’s only now, nearly a year later, that those men are facing sentencing.

A 40-year-old San Francisco man was walking through Dolores Park park around 1:30 AM on July 31, 2010, when he was attacked by as many as 12 people who robbed him, beat him, and stabbed him multiple times.

The man was hospitalized with severe injuries, and two men ages 18 and 20 and one 17-year-old were arrested on charges of attempted murder robbery, SFPD spokesperson officer Samson Chan said at the time.

Fast forward to Tuesday, when, reports the Ex, 19-year-old Gerard Rivera pleaded guilty last Tuesday to robbery causing great bodily injury, which entails a two year prison sentence, while 20-year-old Jasper Bailey also pleaded guilty to grand theft and faces 16 months in prison.

Sentencing for both men is scheduled for June 3.

    These animals only got 16/24 months for robbing, stabbing and beating a guy nearly to death? I think that stretches the definition of the word “justice.”
