Woman Pleads Guilty to Assaulting 94-Year-Old Grandmother (USA)


Woman pleads guilty to assaulting grandmother in Hemet home
  
February 24, 2011

According to Hemet police investigators, when the senior citizen opened the door, her granddaughter, April Courtney, yanked her aluminum cane away and began thrashing her with it. The victim was hit around 20 times in the head and body.
A woman who broke into her 94-year-old grandmother’s Hemet home and beat her with a cane pleaded guilty today to burglary and elder abuse.
April Courtney, 36, had been slated to go on trial for the Sept. 3, 2008, attack, but at the last minute worked out a plea deal with the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office.
In return for her plea, prosecutors dropped a charge of attempted murder. In addition to the burglary and elder abuse counts, the defendant admitted guilt to sentence-enhancing allegations of using a weapon during a felony and inflicting great bodily injury on a person over 70 years old.
She could face 15 years in state prison, with sentencing slated for June 10 in the courtroom of Superior Court Judge Dennis McConaghy.
