A man who is serving time for the death of Gilbert Alvarez Jr. was brought back to court to sort out an issue regarding his sentence.

A-Last Simiron was one of two men charged in the beating death of Gilbert Alvarez in 2017. One year later, Simiron was convicted and sentenced to 20 years to life in prison.

But an issue regarding two of the lesser included charges of aggravated assault and misdemeanor assault required the court to hold another sentencing hearing.

According to Attorney General Spokeswoman Carlina Charfauros, Superior Court Judge Maria Cenzon needed to sentence Simiron on those charges.

She says that a new sentence will be given on Jan. 20, 2020.
