2 Youngstoiwn women convicted in police officer's beating



Published: Fri, May 18, 2012 @ 10:05 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Two more of eight women charged in the beating of a Youngstown officer in 2011 have been convicted and sentenced in Mahoning County Common Pleas Court.

Britany West, 21, of Winona Avenue and Jamalia Abrams, 21, of Parkwood Avenue, both appeared this week before Judge John M. Durkin for sentencing in separate plea agreements.

Both women initially had been indicted on felony rioting charges in the assault on Youngstown Police Officer Bridget Quinn in March 2011.

Charges against West were reduced to misdemeanor attempted disruption during an emergency. She was sentenced to six months’ probation beginning this week.

Abrams pleaded guilty to the felony rioting charge and appeared for sentencing

today with her attorney, Pete Climis. Nicholas Brevetta, an assistant county prosecutor, and the state parole authority recommended she be given probation because she has no prior criminal record, has two children and is employed.

Abrams apologized for her role in the altercation but said she did not actually assault the officer.

“I would never disrespect an officer of the law like that,” she told the court before sentencing.

Judge Durkin handed down a sentence of probation for one year.

So why should police officers get up every day and try to protect this city when these animals only get probation for beating up a police officer. Are these judges really that "STUPID."

Judge John M Durkin remember this totally incompetent example at election time.

Vicious Animals. Police generally can shoot vicious animals like these. Does stand your ground apply in this case? Where's the uproar and protests or is this acceptable behavior? I guess the Stop the Violence campaigns aren't working. Then you have to look at the animals you are dealing with.
