Man sentenced to 25 years in prison for Norwich beating death

New London-AP) _ A Norwich man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison Monday for his role in the 2004 beating death of 43-year-old William Derose in Norwich.
Michael Pires Junior was originally charged with murder but pleaded guilty in February to reduced charges of first-degree manslaughter and hindering prosecution in the June 2004 beating death.
Last August, a Superior Court jury convicted Pires' father, 51-year-old Michael Pires Senior, of murder in the same incident. The elder Pires was sentenced in October to 60 years in prison. .........

Pires Jr was not in the home when the nails were pounded into Derose. Everyone pointed the finger at each other for what they did. Pires admitted to his part while the rest plead what their lawyers told them. Explain to me why any of them got out early when one was accused of rape and another had an assault charge already pending for hospitalizing a 15 year old. Some did a year to 4 years and Pires Jr and Sr are the ones handed the stiffer sentence. If 6 are involved why are 2 locked up?
