Three teenage brothers, including two twins, have been sentenced in Wayne County Superior Court after pleading guilty to assaulting a man on Nick Drive in New Hope.
Josh Scott Lane, 19, and twins Justin Allen Lane, 17, and Preston Lee Lane, 17, all of Eva's Lane, Stantonsburg, were sentenced to 11 to 14 months in prison on felony charges of assault inflicting serious injury.
The three were accused of entering a home Feb. 11 and severely beating the resident. The victim, Richard Reese, underwent surgery for his injuries and was released later from Wayne Memorial Hospital.
