The court, in a unanimous decision, found that the five-year prison sentence handed down by Judge Robert C. Noonan on Nov. 14, 2012, was "unduly harsh and severe under the circumstances of this case."

District Attorney Lawrence Friedman said he's disappointed in the decision.

"We felt Judge Noonan's sentence was appropriate," Friedman said. "I thought it was well reasoned. It may have happened before, but I don't recall a sentence of his being reversed in his 17 years of being a judge."

The ruling means Simmons, who became a mother to her first child shortly after an appellate judge stayed her sentence in 2012, is saved from serving any further state prison time. The one-year sentence, likely to be reduced to eight months on good behavior, will be served in a county jail.

YIPPEE, YAPPEE AND YAHOOEEEE!!

"simple assault" ? The old lady had several bones broken in her face and has suffer many other medical problems because of this " simple assault"?(your words)
Many of you whites have KILLED a person while drunk driving, and got only a 6 month sentence. And you are trying to say that this black girl that was only defending herself and her belongings from some crazy white lady who grabbed her, should get 7 years in jail for punching her one time???

What makes Jacquetta a ghetto thug ???
And what makes the old white lady a police officer ???

Jacquetta was under no obligation to show her receipt to a cashier and the cashier had no legal right to rip Jacquetta's property out of her hands, nor did the cashier have a legal right to put her hands on Jacquetta.

Jacquetta had the legal right to defend herself and her property. Its sad that you people and the justice system doesn't see it that way in this case just because the color of Jacquetta skin. Its sad that the justice system, you people, and this old lady look at Jacquetta as just a ghetto thug instead of a paying customer.

It would still be a simple assault. The injury is only a result of the assault. Now , a murder is a form of assault and much more severe than just a punch to the face. That's how an assault is a simple assault and held true in the judicial community as such.

At attorney who once bragged that he "owned a judge" has been sentenced to 20 years in federal prison and ordered to pay more than $12 million dollars in restitution.

Attorney Marc Rosenthal appeared for sentencing hearing before U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville on Tuesday afternoon.

WRONG !!!!

Jacquetta Simmons need only serve one year in jail for punching a Walmart cashier on Christmas Eve, 2011, according to a ruling issued by the the Appellate Division, Fourth Judicial Department, NYS Supreme Court.

She is not free, she must serve her jail sentence, sorry but that does not make you free so in your words.....GET OVER IT.

She'll screw up again in the near future and be back in jail. This is a no brainer. Anyone who punches out an old lady has major anger issues. No doubt. She will commit another disgusting crime. Pure trash. Period. And the fact the Crotchety is cheering this crime speaks volumes about her mental state as well. Now go post a million times using my name, child.

My god, she was trying to avoid trouble she was trying to walk away, and that old crazy white lady was going after her chasing her and grabbing her and her stuff, what do you people expect???
I can't believe no-one can admit that the old woman was wrong in her actions.
I can't believe all you people act as if it is normal for a cashier to check receipts at registers.
If she was going to chase after and grab her and her property, she shouldn't have "asked" for the receipt but she should have demanded it.

This past year this same judge also sentenced a young man to 16-17 years in prison for breaking into three Batavia churches. It was noted that he had never been in trouble before and was high on bath salts at the time.
No one was hurt. It was simple burglary to unoccupied buildings. Should his sentence be reduced to one year?(S/N he does not have major drug money financing him like...)
I don't care about the judge, in fact I haven't even mentioned him once. So stop trying to stir the pot with your nonsense. It's apparent this particular judge like to either hand down harsh sentences or he is trying to make examples out of people. If you want to argue, become a lawyer and go play in court. Oh and by the way, where did I ever say any sentence should be reduced......oh that's right.....I didn't. Try again.
