SAN DIEGO (CNS) - An 18-year-old man who admitted involvement in a gang-related assault on the San Diego trolley that left two people with stab wounds was sentenced Monday to three years probation and had a year in custody suspended.
Armando Alfonso Reyes -- who pleaded guilty to an assault charge -- was also ordered to perform 10 days of public work service. Judge Polly Shamoon imposed gang conditions on Reyes even though his attorney said he wasn't a gang member.
The judge told Reyes he could petition to have his felony conviction reduced to a misdemeanor if he's successful on probation.
Two other men -- 18-year-old Arthur Granillo and 19-year-old Christopher Garcia -- have also pleaded guilty to assault and are awaiting sentencing.
