Miracle Harley, 18, pled guilty in August to Disturbing Schools, Carrying a Weapon onto School Property and Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature.
Thursday, Judge Paul Burch sentenced her to five years. She has to serve 85 percent of her time because Assault and Battery is a violent offense.
Police say she brought a gun to school and tried to shoot a 17-year-old girl in May. Http://www.carolinalive.com/news/story.aspx?id=729914#.UCvDqt1mRoo
Harley chased the girl until police say some students managed to wrestle the gun out of her hand.
Harley will not report to prison until January, because she had a baby last week, according to Assistant Solicitor Shipp Daniel.
Until she reports, she'll wear an electronic monitoring device.
"Its an unfortunate and sad situation. But we've got to send a message that its not okay to bring guns to school. It's my duty to protect the community," Daniel said.
Harley faced up to 25 years in prison.
