(Scroll down for video) A black man who was arrested, charged and convicted of assault, received a two month jail sentence for shooting a Hasidic Jew in an unprovoked attack, prosecutors in New York said.

The Clarkstown man was accused of shooting paintballs as a hate crime in the Hasidic village of Kaser.

23-year-old Shashi Ramsaroop also faces three years of probation and a surcharge of $250 after pleading guilty to the crime. Ramsaroop and two others were arrested for shooting at an Orthodox Jewish man with a paintball gun while shouting anti-Jewish slurs.

Charges against the other two suspects were dropped. The victim suffered burns and bruises on his torso as a result of the shooting.
