Girl who pushed friend from bridge JAILED for just two days
A TEEN who shoved her 16-year-old friend off a 60ft bridge leaving her with punctured lungs and six broken ribs will spend just TWO days in jail, a judge ruled today.
Tearful Tay’Lor Smith, 19, was led from court in Vancouver, Washington, in cuffs after being sentenced over the August 2018 push that left pal Jordan Holgerson with severe injuries.
Harrowing footage that went viral showed Smith barging into her friend as she stood on the edge of a bridge that spanned a popular swimming spot.
Smith, who expressed remorse for the “pain and humiliation” that her former friend had suffered, had hoped to avoid jail after pleading guilty to reckless endangerment earlier this month.
But overruling a plea deal struck with prosecutors, Judge Darvin J Zimmerman sided with the victim’s mum who had begged him to send her to prison.
He ruled that Smith spend two days in custody and 38 days on an unpaid work crew.
The charge of reckless endangerment is punishable by up to a year in jail and a maximum fine of $5,000 (£3,800).
In court today, an emotional Jordan Holgerson, now 17, described her fall as the moment “that changed my life for the worse”…
