Two brothers received 46 months suspended sentence.
They were presented to the judge at the hearing on 18 March. The ruling fell on Monday.
Charleroi Criminal Court sentenced two brothers in the case of detaining and selling degrading weapons and treatment. They were sentenced to 40 months in prison with a three-year recovery for the first suspension and six months with a three-year recovery for the second suspension.
The two brothers, who worked in a butcher's shop in Thémon, had been suspected of holding and selling arms for a year. The second suspension targeted them for degrading treatment caused to the butcher's apprentice, who had been hit by a "laughing" taste.
For both facts, the king's attorney had requested a sentence of more than three years with a fine.
