Daniel Patrick Borden was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison, with most suspended, meaning he will serve three years and 10 months, CBS affiliate WCAV-TV in Charlottesville, Va., reported. He will spend five years on probation once he is released.

Borden was one of four men charged in the Aug. 12, 2017, beating of counter-protester DeAndre Harris in a parking garage after the “Unite the Right” rally that drew white supremacists, new-Nazis and other far-right groups to Virginia to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee.

Borden, who attended Mason High School in Warren County through his junior year, was convicted of malicious wounding in May 2018 after he entered an Alford plea, meaning he did not admit guilt but acknowledged prosecutors had enough evidence to convict him.

Harris suffered a broken wrist and needed staples in his head following the attack. He also was charged in the case, but later was found not guilty on those charges, WCAV reported.
