While very little about this incident has been released so far, I would not be surprised to learn that the accused woman suffers from a mental health condition that could have caused her behavior. Mental illness is often responsible for criminal behavior. The woman should be evaluated immediately so that her mental health concerns can be addressed.
A woman who obviously suffers from a mental health condition may have her sentence mitigated for mental health reasons. If the woman requires treatment, then the Court and the State may be willing to be more lenient provided she obtain treatment as a condition of her sentence.
