Dennis Veteri pleads guilty to beating up Rangers fans after Winter Classic

Guilty. An more guilty.

Dennis Veteri, one of three people who beat up a pair of Rangers fans outside Geno's Steaks after the Winter Classic back in January, pled guilty to simple assault, aggravated assault and conspiracy in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia on Tuesday. He's free on bail until a sentencing hearing on October 26.

Court documents show that further counts of simple assault, aggravated assault, conspiracy and recklessly endangering another person were dropped by the District Attorney's office. Veteri's guilty plea was not negotiated with the DA, and according to the Inquirer, the maximum sentence on the aggravated assault charge is 20 years in prison.

While it's good that Veteri will be punished for this crime, two other men were involved in the beating but have yet to be brought to justice. If you have any further information, contact South Detectives at 215-686-3013. We'll keep you posted on this story in late October when Veteri learns his fate.
