Daniel Rodriguez was sentenced on Friday to 12 years in prison in connection with the October, 2009 beating of Jack Price, New York City-based NY1 reported.

Rodriguez, 21 at the time of the attack, and Daniel Aleman kicked and pummeled the 5-foot-6, 130-pound Price as he was coming out of a corner deli around 3AM in the middle-class neighborhood of College Point in Queens.

Price suffered a broken jaw, fractured ribs and a lacerated spleen from the attack.

Price told media outlets that the two men followed him to the store and called him a “stupid faggot” and “dumb faggot” in Spanish.

Both men pleaded guilty to charges of first-degree robbery as a hate crime. Rodriguez was also sentenced to five years' probation.

Aleman was sentenced to eight years in prison last month.

During his capture, Rodriguez denied he was homophobic, a claim his sister was willing to support.

“This wasn't a hate crime.” Christina Rodriguez told the Daily News. “If he's guilt of anything, he'll man up to it.”

Rodriguez, however, allegedly told detectives, “I was angry, 'cause Jack is disgusting.”
