Six teenagers have been sentenced following a violent assault which took place in Canterbury two years ago.
Daniel Ezzedine was left with life-changing head injuries after an attack on Rose Lane during the early evening of June 6, 2019.
The 17-year-old suffered long-term brain damage and still requires ongoing treatment.
Earlier this year, two people were jailed for six years and six-and-a-half years respectively after being found guilty of causing grievous bodily harm to the boy.

One had gathered bricks into a bag that he swung at the victim's head, with the other then kicking him as he lay prone on the floor afterwards.
Now six others have also been sentenced for their involvement in the events that led to the attack, which was investigated by detectives from the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate.
Belcher Barron, 19, of Longbury Drive, Orpington, received an 18-month suspended prison sentence, 200 hours of unpaid work and a 60-day training order.
Michael Murray, 18, of St Gregory's Road, Canterbury, received a 15-month suspended prison sentence, 200 hours of unpaid work and a 30-day training order.
Nancie Lee, 18, of St Gregory's Road, Canterbury, received a two-year community order, 150 hours of unpaid work and a 30-day training order.
Charlie Golding, 17, from Canterbury, who can now be named following the lifting of reporting restrictions, received a two-year youth rehabilitation order, 150 hours of unpaid work and will be placed on an intensive surveillance and supervision programme.
He also has a night time curfew and a city centre ban.
Senior investigating officer Detective Inspector Ross Gurden of the Kent and Essex Serious Crime Directorate said: "Whilst none of those sentenced this week were directly responsible for the attack that led to the victim suffering such tragic and long-lasting injuries, it is safe to say that their appalling behaviour on the day contributed to a level of violence that simply cannot be tolerated.
"They taunted and goaded a group of students visiting the city and sought confrontation with them over an extended period of time.
"Our thoughts remain with the victim and his family. I hope these latest court results, combined with the previous lengthy prison sentences that were imposed, have provided them with some comfort.
"We recognise that this offence also had an impact on the wider community in Canterbury, who responded by showing support for the victim, and I hope these further sentences also give them a sense of closure on the events of that day."
