Knott Guilty

A Philadelphia Common Pleas judge on Monday sentenced Kathryn Knott, 25, of Bucks County, to 5-10 months in jail for participating in an attack on a gay couple in Center City in 2014. Knott, of Southampton, wept heavily when Judge Roxanne Covington announced her sentence. Her parents rose to console her.

She was convicted by a Philadelphia jury in December of four misdemeanor counts – simple assault, conspiracy to commit simple assault, and two counts of reckless endangerment. The panel of eight women and four men acquitted her of more serious felony aggravated-assault charges. Knott was taken into custody immediately and ordered to 2 years probation after her time in.

Knott’s father, Karl Knott, is the police chief in Chalfont Borough, Bucks County.

She should have been sentenced to more.
