BRANDON, Man. - A judge sentenced a teenage girl who assaulted a pregnant mentally disabled girl, causing her to miscarry, to nearly 10 months in custody. The vicious assault was among several offences to which the 13-year-old girl pleaded guilty in provincial court. Judge Krystyna Tarwid said the most shocking part of the case was the age of the offender. The 14-year-old pregnant victim, who has cerebral palsy, was punched and kicked in the head, then repeatedly jumped on by the accused.
