LOS ANGELES — A man who severely beat a San Francisco Giants fan outside Dodger Stadium has pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge.

Marvin Norwood pleaded guilty Thursday in Los Angeles to being a felon in possession of firearms. He faces 10 years in prison when he's sentenced May 7.

Norwood, 34, and Louie Sanchez, 32, were sentenced to state prison for the 2011 stadium attack that left Bryan Stow with permanent brain damage. Federal authorities arrested Norwood when he finished serving time in the beating case.

Police investigating the beating has found semi-automatic rifles, other weapons and ammunition during a search of Norwood's home. Both men had previous felony convictions in San Bernardino County.

Court records show Sanchez is scheduled to change his plea on a similar count Jan. 29.
