Center City gay attack suspects

In September 2014, a gay couple was attacked in Center City by a group of 20-somethings, and the story garnered national attention after social media users banded together to ID the suspects. Two of the three people charged in the assault pleaded guilty in exchange for probation and community service. They’ve also been banned from Center City. The third defendant, Kathryn Knott, was convicted in a trial and sentenced in early February 2016 to five to 10 months in prison, but she’s trying to get an early release.
