The Los Angeles County District Attorney formally filed charges on Friday against Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood in connection with the assault on Bryan Stow. Sanchez and Norwood were arrested Thursday afternoon after new evidence connected them to the assault and exonerated previous suspect Giovanni Ramirez.
Sanchez and Norwood have been charged with three felonies in the case including one count of mayhem, one count of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury and one count of battery with serious bodily injury. Sanchez was also charged with two counts of misdemeanor battery. If convicted, Sanchez faces up to nine years in prison while Norwood faces eight years in prison. They remain in custody facing bail of $500,000.
Thursday afternoon also saw the LAPD arrest Dorene Sanchez on suspicion of being an accessory after the fact to a felony. She has not yet been formally charged and was released on $50,000 bail.
Sanchez and Norwood will be brought in for arraignment on Monday at which point they will enter their respective pleas to the charges.
