A California woman entered a no-contest plea on Thursday after she was arrested over the summer over the assault of an elderly man with a brick, officials announced.
Laquisha Jones, 30, entered the plea to one count of elder abuse, infliction of injury, following a July encounter that left the man, Rodolfo Rodriguez, “severely” injured, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.
“On the evening of July 4, without provocation, Jones attacked the elderly man, who is now 92, with a brick,” the DA’s office said.
She was arrested roughly a week later in connection with the assault, police said at the time.
“Jones also admitted allegations of using a deadly and dangerous weapon, a brick, during the commission of the crime and that she inflicted great bodily injury upon the victim,” the DA’s office said Thursday.
A video that depicted Rodriguez with a bloodied face was captured by a witness.
The witness, Misbel Borjas, alleged that the phrase “Go back to your country” was shouted at Rodriguez, according to The Associated Press. But the case wasn’t prosecuted as a hate crime.
Jones' sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 28, and she faces 15 years in state prison, the DA’s office said.
