'Jena 6' beating case wraps up with plea deal

District Judge Tom Yeager's plea deal gave five of the "Jena 6" defendants (Carwin Jones, Jesse Ray Beard, Robert Bailey Jr., Bryant Purvis and Theo Shaw) seven days probation and a $500 fine.

Jones, Beard and Bailey were assessed an additional $500 in court costs.  Shaw was exempt to court costs, because he stayed in jail for nearly seven months, unable to raise bail, following his initial arrest.

Mychal Bell, the sixth defendant, had previously pleaded guilty to a second-degree battery charge and received an 18-month sentence.  Here is the story.
