A western New York woman who’s accused of punching a 70-year-old WalMart greeter on in the face will spend the next five years in prison. She was sentenced under New York state’s “Granny Law.” which makes it a felony to injure someone 65 or older if the defendant is at least 10 years younger than the victim.
In court, Suozzi broke down as she told the court how her life has changed since that attack. ‘What she has taken away is irreplaceable, she has taken away my independence…she has taken away my joy and replaced it with trauma,’ she said.
Jacquetta Simmons, 27, was asked by greeter Grace Suozzi to see a receipt for merchandise the woman was carrying out of the store. It was then that she was attacked by Simmons and the entire incident was caught on video. See video next page.
