According to the Sacramento Bee, Stone was in court and told a reporter he thinks his attacker should have gotten more time.

Stone was out with a group of friends in midtown Sacramento in October 2015 when surveillance video shows his group and another group getting into a fight.

Stone was stabbed multiple times and his attackers got away.

Tran was arrested a few weeks later.

Stone, along with childhood friends Alek Skarlatos and Anthony Sadler, became internationally famous after they helped stop a gunman on a Paris-bound train in August 2015.
