Bay Area man sentenced for Lake Tahoe casino attack

MINDEN, Nev. — A Bay Area man has been sentenced to 32 months in prison for beating two women at a Lake Tahoe casino so severely that one victim suffered a miscarriage.

Douglas County District Judge Tod Young imposed the sentence Tuesday on 27-year-old Huy Phan of Fremont, Calif.

Gardnerville's Record-Courier reports (http://bit.ly/Y3nfZG ) Phan pleaded guilty in December to battery causing substantial bodily harm, which carried a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison.

Phan is accused of beating the two women in a Stateline casino hallway on Jan. 8 while he was with his sister and four other men.

The other victim has undergone multiple surgeries for facial injuries after being knocked unconscious.
