First Omaha man convicted of antigay hate crime sentenced to 12-18 months in prison

Also: Tragically, the two handsomest teams in the College World Series of Baseball were the first to succumb to double elimination at TD Ameritrade Park during the NCAA tournament finals this week in Omaha.

Judge Leigh Ann Retelsdorf has sentenced Gregory Duncan to a 12-18 month prison term for sucker punching a straight man who accompanied two gay friends to an Omaha restaurant. KETV says Duncan will be eligible for parole in six months and has already served 53 days.
      Duncan, of Kansas City, was convicted in February of third degree assault with discrimination in an October 2013 attack on straight, now-former Marine Ryan Langenegger outside a Pepperjax restaurant in Omaha's Old Market.
     Duncan skipped his sentencing date last month, was re-arrested, and brought to court today.
