NY woman resentenced for decking Walmart worker

BATAVIA, N.Y. – A 28-year-old woman has been given a court-ordered one-year sentence for punching a 70-year-old cashier at a western New York Wal-Mart on Christmas Eve 2011.

The Daily News of Batavia reports Jacquetta Simmons was resentenced Monday after a state appeals court earlier this month ruled that her original five-year state prison sentence was too harsh. She’ll serve a one-year term in a county jail with credit for time already served.

Simmons was convicted in August 2012 of assault for punching Wal-Mart cashier Grace Suozzi after she asked to see a receipt for merchandise Simmons was carrying out of the Batavia store on the morning of Dec. 24, 2011.

Police say the punch knocked the cashier to the ground and caused fractures to the side of her face.
