SCHENECTADY, N.Y. – Three teens accused of beating a man in a Bow Tie Cinema theater were given youthful offender status in court Friday.
The assault took place inside a theater of the Bow Tie Cinema in June 2013. Prosecutors said four teens were being disruptive and attacked the man who told them to quiet down.
Prosecutors said the man was left with broken bones, and his daughter was also knocked down when she came to his defense.
All four teenagers involved are under the age of 18. Three of them appeared in court Friday, and were facing Assault in the Second Degree charges. The judge granted all three youthful offender status.
The judge sentenced one of the 16-year-olds involved to one year in county jail along with an order of protection to stay away from the victims until 2019. The other two teens were granted time served and will serve five years probation.
All the teens will have to pay restitution totaling upwards of $6,000.
