Cab driver’s attackers admit to hate crime

Back in November, Harbhajan Singh, a 56-year-old cab driver in Sacramento, California, was attacked and beaten by two men who were later apprehended by the police.  The men were charged with assault and hate crime offenses.  Today, the two men pleaded guilty:

41-year-old Pedro Ramirez and 33-year-old Johnny Morales were in court Monday to enter the plea agreement and admit their guilt. In exchange, Morales will be sentenced to a year in jail, and Ramirez will get 13 years.

On the heels of Friday’s shootings of two elderly Sikh men that is suspected of being a hate crime, this gives hope that the perpetrators will also be brought to justice.
