Three of Five Defendants Sentenced for Vicious Crime Spree

DENVER—Prosecutors with the Denver District Attorney’s Office today announced that three of five men were sentenced after going on a crime spree in 2021 that culminated in the shooting death of 18-year-old Shmuel Silverberg. Noah Loepp-Hall, Seth Larhode, Aiden Sides, Isaiah Freeman and Samuel Fussell entered guilty pleas earlier this year for their actions that involved multiple victims and crime scenes in Denver, Aurora and Lakewood.

“These five young men went on a vicious rampage that left one man paralyzed, a son dead and members of Denver’s Jewish community reeling” said Denver DA Beth McCann. “I wish peace for Shmuel Silverberg’s family and friends and the other victims of these horrendous and brutal crimes as well as their families and friends. I also want to acknowledge the Denver police officers and our prosecutors, investigators, victim advocates and support staff who worked incredibly hard and with great sensitivity to bring these cases to conclusion.”

“We are forever grateful to the Denver Police Department and the Denver District Attorney’s Office for their tireless work on behalf of our son,” said the parents of Shmuel Silverberg. “Their care, concern and sensitivity to our feelings and needs were unparalleled. We thank them for being there for us when we needed them and for taking the time to make sure that we understood all the proceedings.”

Noah Loepp-Hall was sentenced to a stipulated prison sentence of 65 years. Aiden Sides was sentenced to a stipulated prison sentence of 41.5 years. Isaiah Freeman was sentenced to a stipulated 30-year prison sentence. Samuel Fussell will be sentenced on June 30, 2023, and Seth Larhode will be sentenced July 21, 2023.
