  • Breaking: Judge Refuses Convicted Philly Gay Hate Attacker's Request To End Jail Sentence

    Kathryn Knott Will Have to Serve the Remainder of Her Jail Sentence

    Kathryn Knott will not be getting out of jail any time soon. The convicted Philadelphia anti-gay hate attacker who refused a generous plea deal, insisting she was innocent, will have to serve her 5-10 month sentence, a judge Monday morning ordered.

    "The sentence is well within the guidelines and is as appropriate as I can provide within the law and shall remain," Judge Roxanne Covington told Knott and her new attorney, Bill Brennan. "The motion is denied," Philly Voice reports.

    Brennan had requested Judge Covington consider allowing his client to record a public service announcement in exchange for removing her jail sentence. The argument Knott's attorney made was she should not have been given a stiffer sentence than the one her two accomplices were given in the plea bargain they agreed to.

    "We're disappointed that some of the options we presented were not granted," Brennan told reporters. "I thank and applaud Judge Covington for allowing our process to take place in an open court. I can deal with a denial. I can't deal with a non-response or a stonewall."

    Knott has 30 days to file an appeal.

    She was found guilty in December of a September 2014 attack on a same-sex couple that left one of them unconscious and forced to have his jaw wired shut for months.

      I despise her as much as anyone, and her hateful ass is getting what it deserves. But y’all are indulging in some gendered, sexist slurs. Do better. Think harder. There are more effective descriptors out there. Read a book and you might discover some of them!

      this entitled fucking bitch thought that her privilege was going to get her completely out of any responsibility. The sad part is that her father who’s a police captain and racist bigot, has managed to stay out of the limelight and he taught her this, not to mention of what she did when working at the hospital which she was fired. The one outcome from all of this what Miss Knott fails to realize is that this is permanently on her record for the rest of her life no matter where she goes. No one, not even her scumbag father will be able to expunge her criminal record. GOOD.

      So this little twat refuses a plea deal. Then gets convicted, given a very LIGHT sentence, but then wants less Bc it’s ‘unfair’ that those that took a plea deal got less time? Does this idiot not understand plea deals? You usually DO get a better deal of you take the plea. If you’re an asshole that makes the court and people go through the trial to convict you Bc you won’t admit guilt, you don’t still get the plea deal!! Idiot!
