A suburban Philadelphia woman convicted of participating in a 2014 group attack on a gay male couple in downtown Philadelphia won't receive the reduced sentence she had hoped for.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Roxanne Covington ruled Monday that Kathryn Knott's sentence of five to ten months in jail was appropriate.

Covington said that the 25-year-old Knott is “in need of correction” and that a shorter sentence would “depreciate the seriousness of the crimes.”

The victims of the 2014 attack told police that they were rushed by a mob of 10 to 12 men and women after one asked them if they were together. As a result of the beating, one of the victims was hospitalized for more than three days and had to have his jaw wired shut.

Knott, the daughter of a suburban Bucks County police chief, refused a plea deal and went to trial, where a jury convicted her of four misdemeanors, including simple assault.

At today's hearing, Covington chided Knott for refusing to take personal responsibility for her crimes.
