FORT WORTH (AP) - A teen has been sentenced to 10 years in a Texas Youth Commission Facility for his role in the beating of a man and the robbery of at least 20 at a Halloween party at a Fort Worth-area last year.

The youth — 14 at the time of the attack at the Pantego home — was sentenced Monday. A jury found the now-15-year-old guilty of 18 counts of delinquent conduct/aggravated robbery.

Prosecutor Darrell Davila says, “He wasn’t forced into this. He planned this and even partied afterwards.”

Four others are also accused in the incident.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that police said the man who was beaten had confronted the robbers when he arrived for his child.

Most of those attending the party were Arlington High School students.
