|A man charged in a February attack on a man walking near the Linthicum light rail station has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
An Anne Arundel County judge on Wednesday also ordered that 19-year-old Dana Patrick West not be found anywhere within a mile of any light rail station anywhere in the state while on five years’ probation after his release.
Prosecutors say West and his 15-year-old brother beat a 59-year-old man walking along the Baltimore-Annapolis trail so severely that the man suffered a broken nose, eye socket and cheekbone, three broken vertebrae and a fractured rib.
The attack generated calls to shut down the Linthicum light rail station, but officials never learned whether the two teenagers used the light rail to get to Linthicum.
… Goodbye, Mr. West. …
