Woman who assaulted cop faces sentencing
Rochester, N.Y. -- A judge has handed down a sentence for a woman whose confrontation with police went viral last summer.
Tuesday morning, Brenda Hardaway, 21, was sentenced to five years probation, and six months in the county jail.
Hardaway was arrested when she tried to interfere with her brothers arrest Aug. 27. You can watch YouTube video of that incident here.
She pleaded guilty in January to assaulting a police officer and apologized.
Hardaway, who recently became a mother, was hoping for a lighter sentence, or one that would allow her to be able to care for her son on weekends.
According to 13WHAM's Jane Flasch, the judge said in court Tuesday that Hardaway showed disrespect for authority.
