The deranged thug who mercilessly pummeled a 61-year-old woman on the Lower East Side last year apologized in court Wednesday and was sentenced to nine years behind bars.

Devin Brown, 25, previously copped to second-degree attempted murder as part of the plea deal.

“I just want to apologize profusely for my actions,” Brown said in Manhattan Supreme Court.

Justice Gregory Carro extended the offer over the objections of prosecutor Courtney Groves, who asked for no less than 15 years because of “the brutality of the assault and the extent of the injuries.”

Brown repeatedly bashed the woman’s head into the ground and kicked her as blood sprayed his shoes at the corner of Forsyth and Stanton streets May 20, 2017, according to court papers.

The woman was found unconscious in a pool of blood. Brown later told cops the victim had robbed him.

Legal Aid lawyer Lorin Nathan called the attack an “aberration” and acknowledged that “a great deal of pain was caused by Mr. Brown.”
