A man was sentenced Wednesday to serve four years in prison for beating up one of his friends, who had called him a racial slur, in a Juneau apartment last April.
Surrounded by supporters in the courtroom gallery, Marcos y Galindo, 27, stood up in front of Juneau Superior Court Judge Philip Pallenberg and offered a public apology to the man he hit, identified in court documents as Christopher Davenport.
“Nobody deserves to be hit the way I hit that guy,” Galindo said. “... I take full responsibility for everything.”
