Last year, a woman repeatedly hit a 91-year old man’s face with a brick, after the old man accidentally bumped into the woman’s daughter. During the attack, the woman told the 91-year old, who did not speak English, to go back to his country. A group of men later joined in on the attack against the man. The man suffered a broken jaw, broken cheekbones, two broken ribs, and many bruises on his face. Surprisingly, the victim of the attack was willing to forgive the woman for the brutal attack. “May God forgive her for what she did to me," he stated.
The woman was recently sentenced to 15 years in prison as a result of the attack. "We were able to reach a disposition that I believe accurately reflects her conduct," Deputy District Attorney Frank Dunnick said. "It provides a significant punishment. And it sends a message to her and the community that this sort of violence is not going to be tolerated."
