Woman sentenced in hot oil attack


Lowy imposed a 21/2 year sentence, but suspended 18 months of that term. If she is not deported and ends up serving her probation, she could face up to 15 years in state prison if she violates her probationary terms, which include no contact with the victim and an anger management course.

“No punishment is commensurate with the pain Ms. Mejia has suffered,” said Lowy, who also expressed concern for her children.

But he also took into account Medina’s lack of a record in coming up with a sentence, he said.
