A Cleveland man will spend 18 years in prison for throwing the punch that killed 22-year-old Michael Corrado outside a Warehouse District bar in May.
Walter Triplett Jr. hung his head Tuesday in Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Court as Judge Shirley Strickland Saffold sentenced him to the maximum prison term of eight years for felonious assault with an additional 10 years for earning the status of repeat violent offender.
Triplett, 28, has served prison sentences for violent crimes in four other cases since 1997, Saffold said
