Victim Diego Stolz, 13, was beaten to death at Landmark High School on September 16, 2019.
Video of a passerby on a cell phone shows Diego being beaten, then falls and bangs his head against a pillar in the schoolyard.
The identity of his attackers has not been revealed because they were minors.
Although the district attorney and the Riverside County parole board wanted the two teens to serve longer, Mr Luebs said the law made the more restrictive conditions conducive to promoting rehabilitation. He said the two boys were “directly responsible” for Diego’s death, regretting that he had not planned to kill him.
The judge added that restricting teens to more time behind bars with sophados and more mature criminals would do more harm than good.
The defendants, each of whom originally spent 47 days in a juvenile facility, were ordered to return to juvenile court on June 25 to provide the judge with a progress report.
He warned the boys that if they did not obey, he would order them to be returned to prison.
