Jaquetta Simmons will soon be released from state prison, if she hasn’t been already.
Simmons, according to District Attorney Lawrence Freidman, has posted 50-thousand dollars bail and will be released from Bedford Hills Correctional Facility downstate as soon as paperwork is processed.
The 27-year-old Simmons was convicted of punching a 70-year-old Wal-mart cashier last Christmas Eve.
She was sentenced to five years by Genesee County Court Judge Robert Noonan. But, an appellate court issued a stay of the prison term and made Simmons eligible for parole.
Lawyers for Simmons argued the sentence handed down by Noonan was too harsh for a first time offender.
