    Although he was found not guilty on charges relating to violent Capitol Hill beating, an 18-year-old D.C. man will face a maximum of 90 years behind bars.

    T.C. Maslin was walking home from the Tune Inn Bar Aug. 18, 2012 when he was attacked by Tommy Branch, Sunny Kuti and Michael Moore. Maslin was found on the porch of a home nearby seven hours after the attack. Maslin's skull was shattered into multiple pieces in the attack, leaving him with a limp and limited communication skills.

    Friday, Kuti was found guilty on assault and armed robbery charges in an attack on a group of Adams Morgan men the same night Maslin was attacked. He was found not guilty on assault and robbery charges in Maslin's attack.

    A mistrial was declared on conspiracy and weapons count, but he could face a maximum of 90  years on the charges he was convicted of.

    Earlier this month, Branch, 22, was sentenced to more than 24 years behind bars in the attack. Moore, 19, pleaded guilty and is awaiting sentencing.
