A 25-year-old man captured on a video who violently defeated a man with autism at a Mississauga bus terminal was convicted of time delivery and a two-year probation.
Ronjot Dhami, meanwhile, on Wednesday in connection with the defeat of March 13, felt he had committed a wounded assault on the attack.
The judge gave him 12 months imprisonment and two years of probation. However, with the delivery time, Dhami will immediately be released from custody.
Dhami was one of three men who were seen in a widely shared video released by the Peel Regional Police, which showed an attack on a 29-year-old man with autism.
The victim was sitting on a staircase at Square One Station, dressed with wheels when the perpetrators suddenly attacked her, repeatedly hitting him and kicking him as he knelt down.
Ronjot was the last of three men to surrender to the police on March 26 and has been in custody since then.
Two other suspects, identified as 21-year-old Parmvir "Parm" Singh Chahil and 21-year-old Jaspaul Uppal, were also accused.
Dhami's lawyer, Glen Henderson, agreed with the crown on the verdict.
During the trial, the judge described three men as "foreigners" to the victims and described the attack as "unprovoked".
The judge mentioned that Dhami had come to Ontario, British Columbia, to build a better life for himself.
"Even if it's underrated when you say you're a bad start in Ontario, you have the prospect of reassuring yourself," the judge said.
Dhami regretted turning to the courtroom and said, "I apologize for what I did."
As part of the conditions of his probation, Dhami can not walk up to 100 meters from the Square One shopping center or bus terminal or 500 meters from the victim's home.
Nor can he be in contact with the accused, Chahil and Uppal, or he has a weapon of any kind for the rest of his life.
