Two years in prison for beating of Bolinas transient

    The first of four adults charged in connection with the beating of a Bolinas transient in June was sentenced in Marin County Superior Court Wednesday to two years in state prison for assault.

Ryan Patrick Lorne, 22, of Bolinas, also was sentenced by Judge Paul Haakenson to credit for time served, about 116 days, for misdemeanor destruction or concealing of evidence, a flashlight used in the beating of Ricky Green, Deputy District Attorney Tom Brown said.

Lorne pleaded guilty Aug. 13 to felony assault likely to produce great bodily injury and to the misdemeanor charge.

Green, 33, was found in the area of 94 Brighton Ave. around 11:15 p.m. on June 23. He was suffering from a stab wound and severe lacerations to the head and thigh, the Marin County Sheriff's Office said. He spent about a week in Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital and returned to Bolinas.

Four adults and two juveniles were charged in connection with the beating. One juvenile's case has already concluded in juvenile court and the other juvenile is to be sentenced Friday, Brown said.

Thoren Maxwell Manetta, 21, of Mill Valley, also pleaded guilty to assault likely to produce great bodily injury and misdemeanor destruction or concealment of evidence. He is scheduled to be sentenced Sept. 24, Brown
said.

Suraya Jaimee Khalil, 21, of Bolinas, pleaded guilty to a felony charge of being an accessory after the fact and to misdemeanor assault likely to produce bodily injury, Brown said. Her scheduled sentencing on Sept. 24 will likely be continued, Brown said.

A trial date for Lamont Donyelle Elkins, 19, of San Rafael could be set Sept. 25. He is charged with attempted voluntary manslaughter and assault with a deadly weapon, a skateboard, likely to produce great bodily
injury.

Some of the defense attorneys in the case said Green was known to be combative and to challenge others in Bolinas to fight.
