OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Two women who pleaded guilty to third-degree felony rioting in the beating of a 15-year-old girl -- a video of which showed up on YouTube -- have been sentenced to six months in the county jail.
Paloma Veronica Lopez, 24, and 18-year-old Alexandra Elizabeth Gutierrez were sentenced in 2nd District Court on Wednesday to six months in the Weber County Jail.
Ogden police said a middle school student alerted a school resource officer about a video of the Dec. 2 beating on YouTube, which led police to the suspects.
Police said the beating was over a perceived gang-related insult. The victim was severely beaten and suffered a broken eye socket.
Three juveniles also were arrested in the incident.
