FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – A Broward County judge will hand down the sentence for the alleged ringleader in the 2009 burning of Michael Brewer on December 20.

The judge set the date Wednesday after denying a motion for the acquittal of Bent. The teen was convicted in June of aggravated battery in the attack on Brewer, who was set on fire by a group of teens when he was 15-years-old.

Brewer survived the attack by jumping into a swimming pool at an apartment complex. Two other teens involved in the attack, Denver Jarvis and Jesus Mendez, are in prison after pleading no contest. Both testified against Bent.

Bent was not convicted of the most serious charge of attempted murder. He faces a maximum of 15 years in prison.
