Teen Takes Plea Deal In Video Beating Case:
2 Remaining Teens in Beating Case Accept Plea Deals:
Sorry that I’m late with this one. The stories broke while I was on vacation.
Anyway the last of the three suspects in the recorded beating of Victoria Lindsay have all agreed to plea deal ensuring that none of the suspects will face trial.
Brittini Hardcastle pleaded guilty to false imprisonment and battery. Under the plea agreement prosecutors agreed to drop a felony count of tampering with a witness. Hardcastle is still facing up to five months jail time and will be sentenced on March 30th.
Kayla Hassall pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery. Under the terms of her plea prosecutors agreed to drop felony kidnapping charges. April Cooper pleaded guilty to two counts of misdemeanor battery.
All 3 also have the provisions that they must write letters of apology to Victoria and can not talk to the media for profit.
As some of my commenters have mentioned what’s the deal with the letters of apology? For one I doubt they’ll be sincere and secondly why not just make them write ‘I will not beat Victoria’ 500 times on a blackboard. It will probably have the same effect.
