After being convicted by a jury, Nathan Tenthorey told the judge last month that he was a changed man from the one who used another man’s head as a soccer ball three years ago.But Superior Court Justice Kirk Munroe on Thursday determined that, future promise aside for the 28-year-old, he would have to spend time in prison to atone for his savage beating of Robert Brochu, a Belle River family man who had an unfortunate encounter with Tenthorey’s girlfriend at the Sunsplash Festival on July 22, 2016.Munroe sentenced Tenthorey to four years in prison, less two months credit for the bail restrictions he lived under pending his trial and conviction for aggravated assault.Defence lawyer Frank Miller told the Star Friday that both the conviction and the sentence will be appealed. He wouldn’t provide details of what the appeals will be based on.Related
Meanwhile, Miller said the appeal will be accompanied by a bail application so Tenthorey can remain free until the matter is dealt with at the Court of Appeal for Ontario.Brochu testified he was knocked to the floor and repeatedly kicked in the head at a house party following a brief encounter with Tenthorey earlier that night at the Sunsplash Festival beer email@example.com/schmidtcity
