It could be three-and-a-half years in prison for the two women who police say attacked a state lawmaker during last month’s violent night of protests in Madison.
The D.A. in Madison yesterday filed felony battery charges against 33-year-old Kerida O’Reilly and 26-year-old Samantha Hamer. Madison Police say they led a mob to beat-up Democratic state Senator Tim Carpenter back on June 23rd. Carpenter took a picture of a crowd of rioters who were tearing-down statues at the State Capitol. He was beaten to the ground.
