Mom Who Coached Daughter During Fistfight Cops Plea, Sentenced To One-Day Parenting Class

The Florida woman caught on videotape urging her daughter on during a fight with a high school classmate will have to complete a one-day parenting class as part of a deal struck with prosecutors, records show.

April Newcomb, 39, entered a no contest plea yesterday to a misdemeanor contributing to the delinquency of a minor charge. She was adjudged guilty by Circuit Court Judge George K. Brown Jr., who sentenced Newcomb to 75 hours of community service and ordered her to complete the parenting class, according to a court appearance record.

Newcomb, pictured at right, will also have to pay court costs.

As seen in the video, Newcomb acted as her 16-year-old daughter’s cornerman during a fight last September against a fellow Palmetto High School student. Newcomb can be heard yelling encouragements like “punch her in the fucking body” and “kick her ass” to her child.

During an investigation of the incident, detectives obtained two other videos shot by teens who attended the brawl (which saw Newcomb’s daughter get dominated by her larger opponent).

With the closure of the case against Newcomb, the $15,000 bond she previously secured from Big Johnson Bail Bonds was formally cancelled, court records show.

Sorry freddy boy I told you iam not gay if you looking for that sort of thing you need to look else where like maybe your dads house or the middle school down the street being a Liberal diddler the middle school is you best bet. And I never said poor people were a disgrace just the two i commented on only going by there address as listed in P.D. report If they lived in a house i would have said that but it's a trailer so i said trailer you should get your facts stright before running your liberal mouth.
For goodness sakes buttercup! Your cookie cutter liberal diatribes are more than a little Freudian. Come on sweety, give us another one of your incest-with-your- dad, Pabst Blue ribbon riffs.
Sorry if the truth hurts so much Freddy you are what you are but there are places you can get help.
LOL! Come on sweety, you can do better than that. Try this one "I KNOW YOU ARE BUT WHAT AM I!!"
Shame on her she should have got jail time. I'd never let anyone put their hands on my child or let my child fight to entertain their peers. All attendee's should have got community service give them some work to do if their that bored. One of those girls could have severely by accident hurt each other and ended up in a youth camp or later prison really people they did look like a bunch of animals.
this is disgusting and sick the mom and everyone there should be sitting in jail. this is why our young kids are corrupt today. There are no more morals and values in the home today. it is sad we have to stay prayed up and pray for our young kids
Thats fighting? LOL
dont forget...the dumb girl didnt stop advancing even though she was getting lickins.....she got what she deserved
parenting classes? sounds like shes already a good parent for supporting her kid, even though she did get dirty lickins!!! she was probably a douche bag and kinda deserved it, maybe a little more fist fighting in this world will teach some people to excersise some respect rather than just running their mouth with no fear of repercussion. good job florida. you have at least one parent on your side!!!
You should join her at the trailer down some pabst and pork rinds you could even bring the Monster truck dvd's. And what the hell is dirty lickins is it when you drop food on the ground you lick the dirt off before you eat it?. takes a moron to support an act like that the state should take your kids before the end up like you.
