Report: Chicago Teen Sentenced In Beating Mentally Challenged Man With Her Friends And Broadcasting It On Facebook Live

One of the four Chicago people who live-streamed the torture of a mentally disabled man last year has been sentenced to probation, after spending almost a year in jail without bond. 

The Chicago Sun-Times reports that Brittany Covington, 19, was held at the Cook County Jail since January after she and co-defendants Tesfaye Cooper, Jordan Hill and her 24-year-old sister Tanishia Covington were arrested on kidnapping and hate-crime charges.

Covington recorded and post a Facebook Live clip of her friends physically assaulting an 18-year-old white man (a classmates of Jordan Hill’s at a west suburban alternative high school).

After this video went viral, many debated whether or not there were racial or political motivations behind the incident, due to the insults Covington and the others were heard saying; at one point, the bunch called the man a Trump supporter and demanded he say, “I love Black people.”
One of the defendants tore the victim’s clothing with a knife, punched and kicked him. And forced him to drink water from the toilet.

Eventually, the unidentified victim escaped. He was later found by police about a block away.

The plea deal prosecutors made with Covington is the first of ongoing negotiations with the other defendants. Covington was the first of the four to be released. She will be placed on probation for four years. She is also barred from contacting Cooper or Hill. The three other co-defendants are still in custody.

Yikes.

Speaking of criminals on camera (or whatever), a man who molested a little girl was recently beaten by his girlfriend and the victim’s mother.

A Florida man named George Avery is facing sexual battery, child abuse and child pornography charges, after his girlfriend discovered a video of him abusing a 9-year-old on his tablet.

Officers arrived at a McDonald's, where Avery reportedly worked, to find two women arguing with him, fighting over his device. Police soon realized who was who.


His girlfriend explained that she had been playing games on his tablet at home when she came across a video filmed in her bedroom showing Avery performing sexual acts. She claims she showed her friend the video, as she was attempting to identify who the other person in it was; the friend then realized it was her daughter.




"I'm the one that found it and I didn't look at it good. I thought it was some other woman," the unidentified girlfriend stated. "I'm shocked because I don't know what to do and I don't know what to say."
