UCSB’s Mireille Miller-Young Sentenced To Three Years Probation For Stealing From And Attacking Pro-Lifers
(T)he group of young women (pro-life protestors) set up in the free speech zone with their posters that day and were having productive discussions until Miller-Young appeared and began to incite students.
"Tear down the sign" was repeated many times by Miller-Young and other students, creating a mob like atmosphere, (Joan Short, sister of the victim) said.
Thrin Short (the young woman assaulted by Miller-Young) also spoke, and said that though Miller-Young issued an apology to the court, "she should issue an apology to her students."
Cathryn Short said that the apology said nothing about grabbing or scratching her daughter, and encouraged the court to enact community service with a group that thinks differently than Miller-Young, in an effort to think "beyond the squabbles of the like-minded in the faculty lounge."
Prosecutor Ron Zonen said that Miller-Young didn't seize the signs because they were offensive, but because they expressed a message she didn't agree with. "She embarrassed herself, the university… she set a poor example for her students," he said.
(Judge) Hill ultimately sentenced Miller-Young to serve her community service in conflict-resolution workshops run by the Quaker Church, 10 hours of anger management and $493 in restitution to the Shorts, which was paid in court Friday.
