New York Woman Allegedly Clobbers Walmart Worker

(Batavia, New York) A 26-year-old local woman, Jacquetta Simmons, faces assault charges for allegedly punching out a 70-year-old Walmart greeter, Grace Suozzi, last Christmas Eve.

Simmons faces felony and misdemeanor assault charges.
The 26-year-old faces up to seven years in prison after being charged under New York state's "Granny Law." The law makes it a felony to injure someone 65 or older if the defendant is at least 10 years younger than the victim.

Simmons is accused of knocking Grace Suozzi off her feet with a blow to the face while Suozzi was checking her receipt. Simmons' lawyer says Suozzi grabbed her bag.
A Genesee County Court jury will hear the case.
