(St. Paul, MN) -- A 17-year-old is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of several charges in the beating of Ray Widstrand last year in St. Paul. A jury in Ramsey County found Cindarion Butler guilty yesterday of aiding and abetting first-degree aggravated robbery and aiding and abetting first-degree assault. The verdict came down around 8:30 last night. Widstrand suffered a severe brain injury in the beating at the hands of as many as ten young men, several of whom are still facing charges.
