NJ man gets 3-year sentence for 2011 videotaped beating of homeless man that was posted online

A New Jersey man captured on video beating a homeless man days before Christmas in 2011 has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Authorities say Taylor Giresi was filmed by a teenage friend as he beat David Ivins in Wall Township.

Ivins, who wore a thick beard and layers of clothes, was a familiar sight in Wall, Belmar and Lake Como.

The videotape showed Giresi punching and kicking Ivins in the face, bloodying his nose, before telling him, "Merry Christmas." It was posted on YouTube.

Giresi was sentenced in Monmouth County on Friday morning for conspiring to use a juvenile to commit a crime. Assault charges were dropped in a plea deal.
