John R.K. Howard Sentencing

District Judge Randy Stoker listens to John R.K. Howard's defense attorney Brad Calbo during Howard's sentencing hearing Friday, Feb. 24, 2017, at the courthouse in Twin Falls, Idaho. Stoker has faced criticism from groups including the NAACP after saying he didn’t think race played a role in the incident. Witnesses say players and coaches often called the victim racist names including “grape soda,” “watermelon” and “fried chicken.”
