Earlier this month, the same county judge imposed a 50-year prison sentence on 24-year-old Aramis Beachem for his role in the shooting of Darius Brown.

Both men were convicted of first-degree murder in January.

Prosecutors say they drove up to the South Side park on August 3, 2011, intending to shoot at members of a rival faction of a street gang. They say nine shots were fired and one bullet struck Brown in the back.

A third defendant is awaiting trial.
