A driver on the West End Bridge saw the attack and videotaped the incident.
It was an emotional courtroom. Both Williams and Beasley expressed remorse for the attack.
Williams cried and pleaded for no jail time because she has three children. Beasley said he’s trying to go back to school and better his life.
Despite their pleas, the judge said their actions have consequences.
Watkins, the victim of the attack, showed anger and hurt. She said her life is forever changed. Watkins said she doesn't have the same passion for teaching anymore.
“I just, I can’t. Too much to explain. It’s something that I figure out myself personally, and being in the classroom doesn’t allow me to do that. I’m surviving,” Watkins said.
