Bowie pleaded guilty in August 2019 to felony aggravated battery. According to information from Wednesday's hearing, the group did not know the victim prior to the attack. Bowie was the one who found a weapon and stabbed the victim repeatedly.

Ada County Prosecutors asked for a 15-year sentence, with 10 years of those fixed. Ada County District Judge Deborah Bail sentenced Bowie to a 15-year sentence with five years to be served before being eligible for parole.

“This case is very serious and it’s very serious because the nature of the attack on the victim was such that the victim could have died,” Judge Bail said during sentencing.
