Mom who urged daughter to fight gets 1 year

Video recorded woman boarding school bus to encourage 10-year-old

TAMPA, Fla. - A mother who was videotaped boarding a school bus and urging her daughter to fight another girl was sentenced Thursday to nearly a year in jail.


Shayla Muldrow, 26, was convicted Tuesday of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and trespassing.


The March 2 fight gained national attention because a surveillance camera on the bus recorded Muldrow climbing aboard, finding a girl who had allegedly slapped her 10-year-old daughter two days earlier, and then instructing her daughter to “handle it.” Muldrow held her daughter’s backpack as the two girls fought on the bus.


Muldrow didn’t react when County Judge John Conrad sentenced her.


Conrad said he struggled with the decision because Muldrow was a single mother of three, but he said he also wondered if she had thought of the ramifications of encouraging her daughter to fight.


Prosecutors asked for two years for Muldrow, who has several previous criminal convictions. Her defense attorney requested only probation.


It's one thing to encourage your kid to stand up for his/herself if other things aren't working (ie, talking to the parents, school office, etc), so that your kid won't become a bully-magnet. But to encourage them to instigate a fight days AFTER it happened?!? OMGosh that woman should have her kids taken away from her!
