FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A woman has been sentenced to a year in jail in Central California in connection with a video posted online in which a woman is taunted, beaten and forced to strip in broad daylight.

KFSN-TV reports (https://abc30.tv/1wADCy9) that a judge issued the sentence against Destiny Rico this week. Rico had pleaded no contest earlier to robbery and street terrorism.

Authorities in Fresno say Rico beat the female victim after the victim stole a roommate’s cell phone. In the video, the victim begs to be left alone and runs naked past apartment buildings and a man on the street, but does not receive any help.

According to KFSN, Rico acknowledged her gang affiliation as part of a plea deal.
