Two men convicted for an unprovoked attack on a veteran journalist are expected to be sentenced this afternoon.
The victim, Carl Schoettler, suffered severe head injuries and was hospitalized for a week after the February 2006 attack.
The attack happened after Schoettler was involved in a minor car accident with Gregory Kulla. Prosecutors say after Schoettler got out of his car to speak with Kulla, Latar Bradshaw and Phillip Carter ran across the street and attacked Schoettler, who was 73 years old at the time.
Carter has already been sentenced to 30 years in prison and sentencing was scheduled today for Bradshaw and Kulla. Bradshaw pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and conspiracy to commit robbery, while Kulla pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and accessory after the fact.
Prosecutors say Kulla didn’t do anything to stop the attack and agreed to drive Carter and Bradshaw away from the scene.
