LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – A Las Vegas District Court judge this morning sentenced the suspect accused of attacking her in the courtroom last week to between 19 and 48 months in jail on charges of attempted battery.

That’s the same sentence Judge Mary Kay Holthus had planned to impose on January 3rd when courtroom video cameras captured Deobra Redden leaping over the bench and landing atop her.
