The sentence stems from the February assault of Dustyn Murrain, 16.
Murrain said a girl lured him into a shed, where three boys beat him with a crowbar and shot him with the BB gun. One of them carved a swastika into his forehead with a box cutter. Murrain was able to escape and run to a nearby store.
KATU reported that it was the 14-year-old who held the gun to Murrain’s head during the assault.
The other teens are charged as adults and will go to trial later this month.
