Thomas Junta Sentenced 6-10 years.


TRIBE Member
For those who dont know Thomas Junta was just sentenced for beating Mr. Costa to death, after their son's minor hockey game in July of 2001.

He recieved 6-10 years in a state prison.
6'1", 275lbs Junta repeatedly beat Mr. Costa a much smaller man to death outside the doors of the arena.

The Dispute was over rough play in the sons (10 year old boys)hockey game.
There was a scuffle inside the arena, Junta left, returned within 5 minutes and attcked Mr. Costa in the lobby, leading outside where junta pinned him down and punched him several times followed with smashing Mr. Costa's head into the pavement.

I think he deserves the sentence
I play hockey, grew up playing it and i have NEVER seen this shit, much less over your 10 year old sons game

i've only heard Junta's side of the storey...that the little coach kept on harrassing, provoking and then punching Junta after the practice, and that Junta only punched him 3 times.

i woulda liked to have seen the trial on courtv
