WHITEVILLE, NC (WWAY) — The Columbus County mother who drove her daughter to a parking lot brawl with another teen has pleaded guilty to contributing to the delinquency of a minor. WWAY was the only media outlet in the courtroom when Aneshia Cartret entered her plea this afternoon.
In exchange for the plea, prosecutors agreed to waive an inciting a riot charge.
Investigators say Cartret drove her daughter to a Whiteville parking lot in February to fight another girl. The fight reportedly stemmed from a dispute between the girls on Facebook. The fight was caught on video.
In addition to the suspended sentence Judge Napoleon Barefoot sentenced Cartret to 18 months supervised probation and ordered that she must get a mental evaluation and anger management assessment and do 48 hours of community service. The judge recommended that if possible Cartret do part of the community service at a school.
“What you did on this occasion is unacceptable,” Judge Barefoot told Cartret in court.
