DENVER (CBS4) – A 21-year-old man has been sentenced to 8 years in prison for his role in the brutal assault and burning of a teenager.

Lynn Kimbrough with the Denver District Attorney’s Office said Erick Perez, 21, pleaded guilty earlier to second-degree assault and unlawful sexual contact.

“On Feb. 14, 2011, Erick Perez and a group of other young people participated in varying degrees in an assault on a 14-year-old boy that resulted in burns that reached the level of serious bodily injury,” Kimbrough said in a statement.
