According to recent reports, a young girl who assaulted her classmate and publicly disgraced her has been sentenced to jail after she failed to appear in court.
She was pronounced guilty by the magistrate after she did not give reasons why she didn’t appear in court, she was also sentenced to three months in prison.
You could recall in a video that went viral last year September how the 16-year-old student assaulted her classmate and publicly disgraced her. After the incident, the family of the girl who was assaulted filed a case against her at a police headquarters in Mahlabathini.
Since she was 16 years old, she was warned and released under the promised care of her mother. She was also charged with assault.
However, she was supposed to appear in court on the 23rd of February 2021 which she failed to show up. The case was then adjourned to the 9th of March while inquiries were administered on why she did not show up in court.
It’s a punishable offense for somebody to be absent in court when they have an ongoing case to be judged. Sadly, the 16 years old girl will have to spend some time in prison thinking about what she did.
