ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A Snowmass man has been sentenced to five years in prison for attacking a man in Basalt while making disparaging remarks about Mexicans and President Barack Obama.

The Aspen Times reports (https://bit.ly/1Zq0Xmy ) that 47-year-old Jerry Lloyd Cunico was sentenced Monday for attacking a 67-year-old Latino man sitting in his car in August. At the sentencing, the victim clarified that he is from El Salvador, not Mexico, as Cunico suggested during the assault.

Cunico pleaded guilty in November to second-degree assault and bias-motivated crime.
