Five to ten year sentences for exceptional brutality

A court in Hradec Králové has served five to ten year sentences to six youths who in May of 2010 brutally beat up two homeless men in the town of Pardubice. After punching and kicking them in turn the youths left the two men severely injured, bleeding and unconscious on the ground. When they returned to the spot an hour later the men were still lying there and the boys resorted to fresh violence, urinating on their bodies before walking away. One of the men later died of his injuries.
