20-month sentence for brutal protest assailant

Readers may remember the Portland protester who kicked a counter-protester unconscious one night back in August. It was brutal attack that made it clear that someone was eventually going to be killed in the demonstrations downtown. Less than two weeks later, someone was.

The guy who delivered the devastating, and horrifying, kick has pleaded guilty to assault and riot and sentenced to 20 months in prison. The Oregonian has the story here.

There were other people involved, but they got away with their parts of the episode.
