Two more teens sentenced in Spotsylvania beating case

Two more Spotsylvania County teens were sent to jail today for their role in the recorded beating of two teens in January.

Matthew W. Shepherd, a 2008 graduate of Courtland High School, was ordered to serve six months in jail for felony unlawful wounding.

Jonathan R. Longtin, a 2009 Courtland graduate, was ordered to serve two months in jail for misdemeanor assault and battery.

The two were among nine Spotsylvania County teens who were each originally charged with two counts of malicious wounding by mob for a beating in Stoneybrooke that left two other teens hospitalized.
