29 year old Conrad Barrett will be in federal court this morning in Houston to face sentencing for what prosecutors call a racist attack.
It was back in 2013 when Barrett went out looking for someone Black to knockout as part of a the then popular knockout game.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Ruben Perez says Barrett found that victim in Katy walking down the street.
That person was a 79 year old African American man who found himself punched in the face and knocked out by Barrett.

The senior citizen was hospitalized and his face left permanently disfigured by the racist attack.
Barrett has entered a guilty plea and will be in federal court Friday morning for his sentencing.
The victim, who spoke with the Factor back in 2014, says he believes Barrett wanted to kill him.
Perez says Barrett’s goal as part of the knockout game was to video tape the attack.

From Entertainment Tonight:
It’s a quiet Sunday outside of the hospital in Roswell, Ga., where Bobbi Kristina Brown’s family is by her side as she lies in a medically induced coma.
A source close to the family tells ET that her father Bobby Brown, husband Nick Gordon and others have been advised to prepare for the worst and that the longer the 21-year-old remains in the coma, the more likely it will be that she will not regain consciousness. They are praying for her recovery but have also started to discuss how they would handle funeral arrangements.
“Privacy is requested in this matter. Please allow for my family to deal with this matter and give my daughter the love and support she needs at this time,” Bobby said in a statement.

Local police have a search warrant and have swept the house for drugs as they continue their ongoing investigation into what happened in Brown’s home.
It has been almost three years since Houston died of accidental drowning on Feb. 11, 2012. The effects of heart disease and cocaine use also contributed to her death. Brown’s incident comes two weeks after Lifetime aired the Angela Bassett-directed biopic, Whitney.
