The Associate Press is Reporting:
“WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A 17-year-old Delaware girl convicted in a school bathroom attack that left a 16-year-old classmate dead was sentenced Monday to six months in a juvenile facility.
The girl was convicted of criminally negligent homicide by a Family Court judge in April in the 2016 death of Amy Joyner-Francis.
Cellphone video of the attack shows Joyner-Francis struggling to fight back and escape as she is repeatedly hit and kicked in the head while her assailant holds on to her hair.
The convicted teen will be sent to a secure, residential treatment program for juvenile delinquents. After her release, she will face additional court supervision and programs until age 19, followed by two years’ probation. She also must perform 500 hours of community service.
A 17-year-old co-defendant who was convicted of conspiracy for helping plan the attack and was seen on the video kicking Joyner-Francis while she was on floor was sentenced to 18 months of probation and 300 hours of community service.
