VANCOUVER, Wash. - A woman who pleaded guilty to pushing her 16-year-old friend from a bridge at a popular swimming area near Vancouver has been sentenced to two days in jail and 38 days on a county work crew.
The Columbian reports Clark County District Court Judge Darvin Zimmerman sentenced 19-year-old Tay'lor Smith Wednesday.
Prosecutors had recommended a sentence with no jail time. Smith pleaded guilty earlier this month to misdemeanor reckless endangerment.
Smith pushed Jordan Holgerson off the bridge Aug. 7 at Moulton Falls northeast of Vancouver.
Video posted on YouTube that went viral shows Holgerson being pushed.
Holgerson broke ribs and punctured her lungs in a fall of over 50 feet (15 meters). Holgerson says she's dealt with anxiety and panic attacks since the incident.
In an interview on "Good Morning America" Smith said she didn't consider the repercussions.
