Videotaped beating of mentally disabled woman brings prison for second Pa. girl
(CBS/AP) CHESTER PA. - Jasmir Womack, 17, has pleaded guilty and been sentenced to prison in the videotaped beating of a mentally disabled woman who was sitting on her steps in a struggling city just outside Philadelphia. Womack is the second teenage girl to plead guilty to the crime.
The Delaware County Daily Times reports Womack was sentenced to 6 to 23 months in prison. She pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and conspiracy to recklessly endanger another person.
Investigators allege the six female defendants -- apparently for fun-- punched, kicked and hit the 48-year-old woman with a shoe and a chair in Chester, Pa. in September 2012. One recorded the beating, which was posted online.
According to the paper, Rahmiiyah Henderson, 16, received an identical sentence in the case Tuesday. Cases against the remaining defendants, Takia Nicole Edwards, 19, Jamia Davis, 15, Janyea Bell and Anye Dennis, both 16, are still pending.
