Two Delaware women who confronted supporters of former President Donald Trump and took a “Make America Great Again” hat from them at the 2020 Democratic National Convention have been sentenced to probation.
In a video viewed millions of times on social media, Olivia Winslow and Camryn Amy were seen ripping apart a Trump poster and taking a red MAGA hat from Trump supporters who were protesting Joe Biden’s victory as the Democratic nominee for president.
The News Journal of Wilmington reports that Winslow and Amy, both 21 at the time, were each sentenced Friday on misdemeanor charges of theft, child endangerment and hate crimes. Neither will serve time in jail.
Judge Francis Jones went along with prosecutors’ recommendation in sentencing the women to multiple counts of conditional probation. If they attend required anger management counseling and complete 40 hours of community service, the probation will be lifted, Jones said.
“We have all had moments of pettiness and immaturity,” said Thomas Foley, Winslow’s attorney.
He said that his client has “learned a great deal” and “paid a tough price.” She and Amy have both received hate mail and death threats since Students for Trump tweeted the video.
The adult male victim of the incident said the harassment the women received has been “punishment enough,” according to a submitted statement.
“I wish things did not get so out of hand from the start,” he wrote. “I hope they can use this to move forward.”
Jones said he took the victim’s wishes into account in sentencing, including his agreement to drop charges of assault, attempted assault and conspiracy in the plea deal.
Amy and Winslow, both of Wilmington, offered apologies after their sentencing.
“I’m ashamed of my actions that day,” Winslow said.
The guy who was with them said the harassment they received was punishment’s enough. I disagree they brought this on themselves, thought they were so tough when they were doing it. They should have gotten more of a sentence than they did but typical liberals always seem to have less consequences than others.
These young women probably know nothing about politics!!
They didn’t look very ashamed during the video of them harassing the child and his family. More likely their sorry for getting caught. These type of people along with Antifa are the home grown terrorists the FBI should be worried about, not Trump supporters who they would like everyone to believe are racists and terrorists. Trump supporters don’t generally go around harassing innocent people unless they are accompanied by FBI informants and agents posing as Trump supporters who are there to induce them to commit crimes like kidnapping a Governor or breaking into the capital. Yes some Trump supporters are stupid and can be lured to do stupid things but most are just everyday average Americans who are sick of the political establishment in this country and just want their country back. Their also sick of the left and the media constantly calling them deplorables, racists and homegrown terrorists. That is why they are going to vote democrats and RINOS out of office in 2022, and If the left and their media lap dogs keeps trying to demonize them and Trump their also gonna vote Trump back in to office in 2024. Don’t say you weren’t warned.
