Most likely, this signals that the last chapter of the case has been reached.
There are still questions about whether all 6 of the boys were actually involved in the incident, but for those who were, this charge (second-degree battery, a misdemeanor) is probably what it should've been all along.
Probably right. I do wish it had gone to trial though, I dislike plea deals on principle and I'd like to have seen it play out in court.
