Teenagers sentenced for brutal attack

Two New Zealand high school students have been sentenced to four months’ juvenile detention after breaking a girl’s neck during a brutal attack.

The attack on the 14-year-old victim in November at Flaxmere College in Hastings was filmed on a cellphone.

Three girls were expelled from the school following the attack.

Two teenage students were this week sentenced to four months’ juvenile detention and a year’s supervision, TVNZ reported on Saturday.

The victim was left with serious spinal injuries and has become a recluse, unable to attend college or play sport, the broadcaster said.

Her mother, Moana Hawkins, said her daughter had been let down by the school.

“You don’t expect to send your child to school in the morning and then two hours later you’re rushing down there because your child’s been bashed.”
