6 Years, 8 Months for Man Convicted of Trying to Kill Friend

Maurice Joyles (pictured), convicted of robbing, abusing, and trying to kill his 80-year-old friend on New Year’s Eve, was sentenced on 12/15 to six years and eight months in state prison. Judge Brian Hill heard a victim impact statement from Christine Woods, Joyles’s former girlfriend and the grandniece of his elderly victim, Frank Herold. She called Joyles a “sociopath.” Joyles’s attorney read his client’s statement of apology, but Judge Hill said he didn’t see any remorse from Joyles. Hill also ordered Joyles to pay $100,000 in restitution to Herold, who, leaving the courtroom, said, “I’m glad it’s over.”
