One of six teenagers charged in the videotaped beating of a Delaware County woman with mental disabilities on her stoop last fall has been sentenced to six to 23 months in prison after pleading guilty in the case.

The Delaware County Daily Times reports the 16-year-old apologized as she pleaded guilty Tuesday to charges of conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and conspiracy to recklessly endanger another person. A plea agreement calls for her to attend school and anger management classes.

Investigators allege the six female defendants -- apparently for fun -- punched, kicked and hit the 48-year-old woman with a shoe and a chair in Chester in September. One recorded the beating, which was posted online.

Cases against the five other defendants are still pending.
