Both Scott and Jonathon Lamagna appeared in Genesee County
Court yesterday morning for sentencing on charges of second degree Assault and Coercion.
A written deposition by the owner of Playmates strip club was presented by District Attorney Kevin Finnell.
According to her statement she had kicked the two brothers out of the club for harassing people and trashing the establishment and later found the assault victim Elliott Arnold in her parking lot in a pool of blood.
As she tried to help Arnold the brothers came back and continued to beat him.
Arnold’s sister Anna Howard denied any accusations that her brother would pick a fight…
  “My brother is smaller than I am, same height but skinnier, he's about 100 lbs. and he's sick.  He has been always recovering from his liver transplant so he’s not a fighter.”
19 year old Jonathan Lamagna was sentenced to 5 years in prison and 3 years post release supervision and was issued 8 orders of protection that expire in 2029.

The sentencing for Jonathan’s Brother Scott Lamagna was adjourned.
Scott’s Attorney Thomas Burns requested time to review new information presented by the prosecution.
Scott Lamagna’s sentencing was rescheduled for February 17th.

31 year old Taheed Moffett appeared for sentencing in Genesee County Court yesterday for a felony criminal mischief charge as a second felony offender.

Frederick Rarick, Moffett's attorney, requested an adjournment of the sentencing to potentially work out a "Global resolution" regarding the litany of other charges in various municipalities that Moffett is facing.
The Judge denied the request and sentenced Moffett to 18 months to 3 years in prison and issued him two orders of protection.
