Teen takes plea deal in videotaped beating case


BARTOW, Fla. (AP) - As part of a plea deal, 18-year-old Brittini Hardcastle pleadedguilty Thursday to false imprisonment and battery.

She could get up to five months in jail and five years of
probation when she is sentenced March 20 in Polk County.
Prosecutors agreed to drop a felony charge of tampering with a
witness.

Hardcastle was among a group of teens arrested last year and
accused of attacking a 16-year-old girl. The attack was recorded on
video and was seen around the world via the Internet and TV
newscasts.
Two other teens already accepted plea deals.
