Teonna Brown pleaded guilty last month to assault and hate crime charges for beating Chrissy Polis, a transgender woman, in a Maryland McDonald's. In court today, she asked for a second chance, which is absolutely appalling if you've seen the viral video of Brown and a 14-year-old girl beating Polis into a seizure. (Particularly since this was Brown's second chance; She was arrested on assault charges at the same McDonald's a year earlier.) Thankfully, the judge refused to simply give Brown a pass and sentenced her to 10 years in prison, with five years suspended, along with three years of probation.
