BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Two teenagers who pleaded guilty to Attempted Murder in the Second Degree learned their fate Thursday.
18-year-old Aaron Gallon and 16-year-old Armontae Moss will each spend seven years behind bars.
The two stomped on a 64-year-old homeless man on Ellicott and Broadway back in September, causing him severe physical injuries.
Gallon’s attorney Robert Cutting was hoping State Supreme Court Justice Russell Buscaglia would sentence his client as a youthful offender.
While that didn’t happen, he feels the Judge did take Gallon’s age into account.
“He imposed something less than what he had agreed to cap it at and certainly less than what he would have faced otherwise,” Cutting said.
“This man has no family. This man has no one to speak out for him accept for me,” Erie County District Attorney John Flynn said of the boys’ victim.
Both Gallon and Moss were also sentenced to five years post release supervision.
