Ex-lunch aide gets jail in student beating case

GRAND RAPIDS, MI (AP) -

An ex-lunchroom aide who authorities say paid students to beat up a fourth-grader has been sentenced to seven days in jail and a year of probation.

The Grand Rapids Press reports that 19-year-old Brooke Wilson-Johnson was taken to jail on Monday following a hearing in Grand Rapids. She earlier pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor of aiding and abetting delinquent acts.

Wilson-Johnson didn't make a statement. She was sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which provides a second chance for offenders aged 17 to 20.

Police have said two 9-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl at Campus Elementary in Grand Rapids said they were each given $1 last fall to beat up the fourth-grader. Wilson-Johnson had denied the allegation, but said the 9-year-old victim swore at her.
