SAN DIEGO - One of two gang members convicted of viciously beating an 18-year-old UC Berkley student in San Diego more than two years ago will spend the rest of his life in prison.
Twenty-nine-year-old Terrence Jarvis was sentenced in San Diego County Superior Court Friday to 170 years to life in prison.
On Dec. 28, 2011, Jarvis and David Daniel White attacked Grant Richman of Northridge shortly after he arrived in the College area of San Diego to spend the night at a friend's home. Doctors initially thought Richman, of Northridge, wouldn't survive.
Jarvis and White went on a 12-hour crime spree that began on Dec. 27, 2011, when a man received a "disciplinary" gang-related beating in front of a home in Emerald Hills.
A woman was robbed at gunpoint in Mountain View. About an hour later, the defendants tried to rob another woman on El Cajon Boulevard in Rolando, police said.
Minutes later, Richman was attacked as he got out of his car in front of his friend's house in the 4600 block of Antioch Place at about 12:30 a.m. on Dec. 28. He was bludgeoned in the head from behind as he placed cupcakes on the roof of his car.
Jarvis was arrested in San Diego the day after the attack on Richman for allegedly violating his parole and committing domestic violence.
White was arrested Jan. 17, 2012, in Mesa, Ariz., for a probation violation. A week later, police said they had tied the defendants to the attack on Richman.
In October 2013, White plead guilty to attempted murder and other charges related to the crime spree and was sentenced to 22 years to life in prison.
Richman suffered severe brain trauma and has been undergoing extensive rehabilitation.
