SCOTTDALE (KDKA) – Two girls involved in a fight that ended up on YouTube were in court.
The 16-year-old and 13-year-old, both students in the Southmoreland School District, were both found to be delinquent on a charge of disorderly conduct. That’s the equivalent of being found guilty in the adult justice system.
One of the mother’s said the girls chose to plead guilty and will each pay a $100 fine.
The 13-year-old, a middle school student, said she’s learned a valuable lesson that she’d like to share with others who are being bullied. She said that she’d tell them to ignore the people or inform someone about the situation.
The fight happened back in April at Garfield Park in Scottdale and although it’s in the past, the 13-year-old’s mother, Chassidy Stenger, says the bullying has continued.
It’s gotten so bad, Stenger says she will be taking her daughter out of the Southmoreland School District next year. It’s a move they both hope will put this whole ordeal behind them.
The ordeal may be over for the girls but it isn’t over just yet for Chassidy Stenger.
She’s due in court on June 8 on charges that she cheered her daughter on in the fight. Stenger says she’ll be pleading not guilty.
