A feminist studies professor at a California state university accused of forcibly grabbing an anti-abortion activists poster and assaulting the 16-year-old girl has pleaded no contest to three misdemeanor charges.
University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one count each of grand theft, vandalism and battery in connection to the March 4 incident involving 16-year-old Thrin Short, her older sister, Joan, and other pro-life activists who were holding signs in a free speech zone on the campus when the professor went berserk.
Miller-Young, who remains employed by the university, and her attorney, Catherine Swysen, did not respond to requests for comment. The charges reportedly carry the possibility of jail time, but sources close to the matter say Miller-Young is likely to be ordered to pay a fine, perform community and undergo counseling when shes sentenced on Aug. 14.
According to a police report on the March 4 incident, Miller-Young told police that she was pregnant and was triggered by the protesters signs and the graphic images depicted on them.
We hope that the sentence as a whole will unambiguously undo the good example she believes she set for her students, both in her own mind and theirs, Katie Short, the girls mother and legal director of Life Legal Defense Foundation, wrote FoxNews.com in an email.
Thrin and Joan Short said they had distributed nearly 1,000 informational pamphlets during the event, which was organized by the Riverside-based nonprofit Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust. Things took an unexpected turn when, according to Short, Miller-Young approached the demonstrators and a group of students who had gathered.

This sorry excuse for an associate professor should be looking for a new job but I doubt she'd have much chance even being hired by a McD's stuffing sacks with burgers.
As an employee of UC, she should be fired from her position. Especially for physical attack.
The whole damn country is out of control. The lunatics are running the asylum and making the big bucks doing it.
You’re absolutely right.
She’s pregnant so she got pissed that someone dared show her what she plans on doing to her baby? Black who are pro abortion are just plain stupid.
Grand Theft is not a misdemeanor ... that’s why it’s grand and not petty.
Aren’t LIBs/DIMs/RINOs just precious? No wonder the LIBs closed mental hospitals in the 70’s. They should be inmates in them now.
No doubt she'll be received like a hero in the faculty lunchroom when she returns from her 'community service', which will probably consist of filing backed-up paperwork at the local Planned Parenthood clinic.
Sadly, you’re probably right.
Where has anyone proved this professor was pregnant? I doubt it, seriously. She’s just a rabid liberal who is acting like they are tenured when she’s only an associate. She’s got no claim on being bullet proof. In any sane college, she’d have been fired.
We need background checks for turkey basters.
I don’t know....I’ve seen some really skank hoors on Maury who I’d have sworn no self-respecting man would bed. But I am always proved wrong. Seems like some of them guys would hit anything with a skirt or a weave.
Is she really pregnant? And the victim can sue her, if the criminal justice system won’t prosecute.
I decided that years ago. This country has turned upside down.
“I doubt she’d have much chance even being hired by a McD’s stuffing sacks with burgers.”
One for you, 2 for me.
One for you, 2 for me.
A company could go broke real quick.
I don’t know but I’d doubt it by her actions that day, if so she didn’t consider the babies welfare.
