The two men accused of beating San Francisco Giants fan, Bryan Stow after last season’s opening day game at Dodger Stadium were ordered to stand trial Friday on charges stemming from the brutal attack. The ruling came after the last witness, the sister of one defendant and the girlfriend of another, testified under a grant of immunity from prosecution.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge George Lomeli made the ruling after a five-day preliminary hearing against Louie Sanchez, 30, and Marvin Norwood, 31. The pair are accused of mayhem and assault and battery in the attack on Bryan Stow. Stow suffered brain damage and is permanently disabled.  With 1/3 of his brain permanently damaged, he now requires around the clock care. This past winter he spoke on camera for the very first time.

I hope these men are punished to the fullest extent of the law. Bryan Stow was a fan of a great American past time and he shouldn’t have to suffer the rest of his life for it.

There is hope. Last winter, Stow spoke on camera for the first time. You can watch a video update of his progress here:

Let’s continue to pray for Brian Stow and his family….and even for the men accused of this terrible crime. Let’s let peace prevail.
