Remember the young black woman who was punched by a Seattle police officer while intervening in a jaywalking stop (also known as the punch heard 'round the world)? Yesterday, the woman pleaded guilty to assault.
Via the Seattle Times:
Angel L. Rosenthal, who was 17 at the time of the June 14 incident, pleaded guilty to fourth-degree assault, a gross misdemeanor, during an appearance in King County Juvenile Court, said Dan Donohoe, spokesman for the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. Superior Court Judge Helen Halpert sentenced Rosenthal to one year of probation and ordered her to complete 80 hours of community-service work.
