DETROIT (AP) -- A judge has sentenced a 19-year-old man to six months in jail in a mob attack on a Detroit-area motorist who stopped to help a boy whom he struck with his pickup truck.

Latrez Cummings returned to court Thursday, a week after Judge James Callahan postponed the sentence so he could learn more about Cummings' school attendance.

Cummings is the final defendant to learn his punishment. He and four others pleaded guilty to assaulting Steve Utash, who was in a coma for days after the April 2 attack. The longest sentence has been about 6 1/2 years in prison. One man got a year in jail.

A teenager whose case was handled in Juvenile Court will be in custody until at least September.
