Delaware judge convicts girl in fatal school bathroom attack
Sentencing rescheduled in fatal attack on Joyner-Francis
A whole 6 months in JDC. Thats not much justice for Amy :tantrum:
I just saw that, too, Babyslims. Unbelievable.
Zion Snow got 18 mos. of probation.
If that is what she was capable of at age 16 years, I shudder to think of what sort of adult she is going to grow up to become. I really don't think the 6 months in JDC is going to change her attitude to life and her lack of respect for other people's lives either. I think she is already BAD.
Statement from the family:
Delaware Supreme Court upholds conviction in Joyner-Francis death
The Delaware Supreme Court has upheld the conspiracy conviction of a teen involved in the death of Amy Inita Joyner-Francis, who died after being attacked by classmates in a Howard High School of Technology bathroom in April 2016.
Zion Snow was one of two classmates found delinquent – the family court term for guilty – of conspiracy in the attack that led to the death of Joyner-Francis and who appealed the ruling.
Last year, Snow was sentenced to 18 months of community supervision. That will stand under the court's recent order.
Joyner-Francis family sues school district, classmates for negligence
The lawsuit filed in New Castle County Superior Court Monday seeks compensatory and punitive damages from the New Castle County Vo-Tech School District, which oversees Howard, as well as Trinity Carr and Zion Snow, students who were charged in the attack.
The filing argues school officials' failure to monitor students' bathroom activities amounts to negligence in its duty to protect Joyner-Francis. The filing also claims and that her attackers acted recklessly.
Roger Landon, an attorney representing the Joyner-Francis family, said school officials should have done more to prevent such an attack.
Trinity Carr, a teen involved in the fatal beating of a classmate at a Wilmington high school in 2016, was resentenced this week after the Delaware Supreme Court overturned her negligent homicide conviction.
Carr, 18, was sentenced to time and community service already served and was released, according to court documents. Nearly a year ago, Carr was sentenced on the homicide and a conspiracy charge to six months at Grace Cottage – a secure residential program for girls near Wilmington.
