Teonna Monae Brown, 19, pleaded guilty last month to first-degree assault and a hate crime after the beating of Chrissy Lee Polis, 22. The April attack drew national attention after a video of it went viral online.

Brown was sentenced to 10 years total but five years were suspended. She will also serve three years’ supervised probation. The combined maximum sentence for the crimes is 35 years.

In court, Brown apologized for the attack. “My mother didn’t raise me like this,” Brown said. “I would really like to apologize to the victim.”

Polis submitted a statement to court but did not attend the sentencing. “My private life has been exposed to the world. I lost my job. I cannot go anywhere without the fear of getting hurt again,” Polis wrote. “I want to go into a hole and hide.”
