Active Sentencing Day in Kalamazoo

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) --  Monday is sentencing day in the Kalamazoo courts and this week they had a repeat customer and a youtube celebrity on the docket.  

A video of 19-year-old Devonte Gathing, viciously beating a Kalamazoo School Bus Driver went viral in 2009.  Its an image that many will never get out of their mind.

Monday, he was given 6 months in the county jail after he cut a deal with prosecutors to testify against a 15-year-old co-defendant in a mugging.

Gathings was one of three teens who offered to drive a 22-year-old to a place where he could buy marijuana last December.  Instead they drove their victim to Oshtemo, robbed him, assaulted him and left him stranded.

They crashed their car on their way back to town and got arrested.

Gathings has a long history of scrapes with the law because he has mental problems, and is getting counseling.
