DETROIT – Prosecutors are returning to court to ask a judge to reconsider the sentences for two men who participated in a mob attack on a Detroit-area motorist in April.
Latrez Cummings got six months in jail, and James Davis was sentenced to a year in jail. Prosecutors say the punishments are too light and don't reflect the severity of the beating of Steve Utash.
Judge James Callahan will hear arguments Friday in Wayne County court.
Utash, a suburban tree trimmer, was in a coma for days after being beaten in Detroit in April. He got out of his pickup truck to help a 10-year-old boy who had darted in front of his vehicle. Utash still is recovering.
Five people pleaded guilty to assault. Attempted murder charges were dropped.
