Two men, Paul Beebe, 27, and Jesse Sanford, 25, pleaded guilty Tuesday before a San Jaun County jury in the April 29, 2010 attack of Vincent Kee, a 22-year-old Navajo man who suffers from fetal alcohol syndrome.

Beebe and Sanford, along with a third man, William Hatch, were accused of branding a swastika on the arm of Kee, along with drawing degrading pictures, sexual and racial on him.

The three men were charged with first-degree felony kidnapping, second-degree felony conspiracy to commit kidnapping, third-degree felony aggravated battery causing great bodily harm and fourth-degree felony conspiracy to commit aggravated battery reports The Daily Times.

Both men could face more than eight years in prison, in what they deemed a mere prank.
