Atlanta - Three young men have been sentenced to five years in prison for the videotaped beating of a gay man on an Atlanta street corner that was captured in a widely viewed video.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Dorian Moragne, Dareal Demare Williams and Christopher Cain were also given five years of probation on Friday. Their sentences stems from the February 4 beating of 20-year-old Brandon White.

The fourth suspect, Javaris Bradford, is still at large.

Defence Attorney Jay Abt, who represents Moragne, says probation will include intensive community service and sensitivity education following their prison term.

The video showed men punching and kicking White as he walked out of a grocery store in the city's Pittsburgh neighbourhood, south of downtown. Gay slurs were heard on the video, and one man slammed a tire on him.
