Teen Sentenced In Syrup Attack On Elderly Woman

Co-accused in court next week

A teenager, who poured syrup on a 97 year old Barrie woman after breaking into her home last December, has been sentenced to five months open custody and two years probation (open custody is similar to a halfway house). The woman pretended to be asleep during the attack by the 16 year old and another youth. They proceeded to ransack her house. A co-accused appears in court next week.
