The Maryland teen who admitted to torturing an autistic boy while and filming the abuse has been sent to a juvenile facility where she'll stay for up to four years.
Lauren Bush, 17, pleaded guilty in juvenile court last month to distribution of an obscene video and second-degree assault. Under her sentence, she'll be released before she turns 21, NBC Washington reported.
Her case was moved from an adult court where she faced up to 80 years in prison to the juvenile system.
The lighter sentence outraged the victim's father, who wanted the high school junior punished as severely as possible.

We know who’s fault it is...
The makeup helps, but there is a distinctive look.
And these kids often have trouble knowing right from wrong.
How’s that power taste now, beeotch?
Darn feral, Amish, savages!
Yeah, the eyes are a bit off.
I’d be making sure I there was a clear path to the door....
I agree. A facial deformity is part of fetal alcohol syndrome.
“Her case was moved from an adult court where she faced up to 80 years in prison to the juvenile system.”
SMH. I get the point of the juvie system, and I’m fine with it for the kid who does something dumb but can be straightened out. (I can think of at least one guy in my high school that benefited greatly from getting the crap scared out of them by a judge, followed a brief stint in the local youth facility).
When you have someone who delights in inflicting suffering on another human being, though, especially one who inflicts that suffering on a helpless individual, you are WAY beyond stupid teenage stunts. This girl is a sociopath. I would lay money she’s not the least bit remorseful for her actions. I’d also lay money that eventually, this girl and her accomplice would have killed the victim in this case.
Lock her up, throw away the key. Or, failing that, buy her a house when she gets out. One right next door to the brilliant judge that decided this monster should go to kiddie court.
“This girl is a sociopath.” This girl AND her 15 year old friend! There were two involved. Both should be sent up the river.
We in Maryland also refer to them as "SMIBs". (Southern Maryland InBreds).
Steny Hoyer, Chris Van Hollen and Mike Miller, among others, are also in this group.
That's really too bad. Having her in prison until she is too old and weak to do such things again would satisfy me. I would give her accomplice the same punishment, of course.
Christians checking in to tell me how un-Christian-like that sentiment is in 3 . . . 2 . . . 1 . . .
Maryland "Freak State" PING!
I suspect Bush agreed to plead guilty in exchange for the move to kiddie court.
Come to think of it, that’s probably a very good bet.
Perhaps the deal included testimony against her partner in crime. I don’t know exactly when each person was on trial, however. It could be that her partner testified against her.
Your wish does not sound un-Christian to me, at all.
