Naomi Campbell pleads guilty to assault

By Brandigal (Donna)     Jan 16, 2007 in Entertainment
Naomi Campbell pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault Tuesday for hitting her maid with a cell phone.
A pair of jeans were missing, so in anger Naomi threw the cell phone at the wall hitting the maid.
Ana Scolavino was hit in the back of the head with the cell phone and treated for head injuries.
Because she pleaded guilty, Naomi will do 5 days of community service, pay the maids medical bills of $363 and attend a 2 day anger management program. Had she went to trial, if convicted, she would face, on second-degree felony assault, two to seven years in prison.
Ms. Campbell said to the courts "I threw a cell phone in the apartment. The cell phone hit Ana,This was an accident because I did not intend to hit her."
She released a statement to the media that said "I pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in court today. That's the best way I know to say I'm sorry to Ana. I accepted responsibility and I'm prepared to take my punishment. But I'm not going to let this incident define me. The past is the past. My future holds great things and I'm getting on with my life,"
This is not the first suit against her from employees accusing her of assault. They date back to 2000.
Lets hope the anger management classes help her. Seems she thinks the help is below her and there to take out her frustrations on.
