City Offers Jail Deal to ‘Bias’ Attackers

Patrick Gallahue, New York Post, Apr. 27

A group of teenage girls accused of a racially motivated attack on six Catholic schoolgirls have been offered a deal that could land them in jail for up to a year and a half.

City lawyers put out the offer yesterday, but the five suspects and their attorneys have until their next scheduled court appearance on June 1 to accept or reject the offer for a guilty plea of assault as a hate crime.

The charge carries an 18-month maximum sentence, but the judge in the case could impose a lighter sentence.

The five suspects—ages 13 and 14—were allegedly part of a pack numbering as many as 30 kids that jumped six white girls in the Marine Park JHS basketball court on March 30.
