Per the Daily News:
"You've ruined this family's life. You are a danger to this community whenever you are at liberty," Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Ann Donnelly said before issuing the hefty sentence to Jamie Pugh, 21.
Ruan died from the injuries he sustained in the unprovoked assault on East Sixth Street between Avenue C and Avenue D. Ruan, a retired garment worker who lived on Avenue C and East Seventh Street with his wife, had just dropped off his granddaughters when the attack occurred.
"I'd like to say to the family I'm sorry for what I've done," Pugh said, when given the chance to address the judge, as the News reported.
