Calling Lemrick Nelson Jr.'s attack on Yankel Rosenbaum a "horrendous and pathetic act of racial and religious bigotry," a federal judge sentenced him to 10 years in prison (most of it already served) on a civil rights conviction Wednesday. The sentence, handed down exactly 12 years from the day Rosenbaum succumbed to his wounds, will likely spell the end of Nelson's protracted journey through the legal system, an odyssey that has resulted in three trials with numerous twists and turns.
