UCSB Professor Sentenced Probation for Assault
updated: Aug 17, 2014, 9:00 AM

The UCSB professor who allegedly assaulted a pro-life protestor on campus, has been sentenced to three years probation and community service, according to a press release issued by the Life Legal Defense Foundation.

Mireille Miller-Young, an associate professor of feminist studies at the University of California at Santa Barbara, was accused by Thrin Short, a 16-year-old pro-life protestor, of assault after an altercation took place on March 4th at UCSB campus. Short alleges that Miller-Young stole her sign and scratched her arm in the process. Miller-Young, who was pregnant at the time, claimed the sign "triggered" her because it displayed graphic and bloody images of aborted fetuses.

Miller-Young pleaded no contest last month to Grand Theft Person, Vandalism, and Battery, all of which are misdemeanors. According to the press release, Miller-Young was sentenced to 108 hours of community service, 10 hours of anger management, three years probation, and ordered to pay a small fine and restitution of almost $500.
