Good News: Kathryn Knott Is Going To Prison

Drunken party-girl and convicted gay basher Kathryn Knott was finally sentenced this week to 5-10 months in prison — and I’m hoping it’s ten — for her role in the 2014 beating of a same-sex couple, Andrew Haught and Zachary Hesse in Center City.

Judge Roxanne Covington also sentenced Knott to two years probation, a $2,000 fine, anger management classes, told her to stay out of Philadelphia County during her probation and to stay away from the victims. No word on whether or not she was ordered to keep her bigoted homophobic hate-filled self off Twitter, though.

Kathryn Knott cried as the sentence came down because, apparently, she thought attacking two men on the street because they’re gay wasn’t a crime … or something. She was taken into custody immediately after the hearing.

In issuing her sentence, Covington said she considered the homophobic slurs used by Knott and others in her group — like Kevin Harrigan and Phillip Williams who took pleas to avoid jail — to be hate speech, even if Pennsylvania law does not recognize it as such. She also wondered how Knott, who worked in the healthcare industry, could leave the two men, neaten and bleeding, in the street.

Simple; she was a drunken gay basher who was thrilled at the idea of beating up strangers. Oh, and she and her band of fifteen had another bar to go to so, yeah, why bother?
"The entire group walked away from this. Until those faces appeared on the news no one responded – and did so only to save themselves from prosecution." — Judge Covington
Naturally, in the hopes that maybe the sentence might go the other way, Kathryn Knott finally, FINALLY, read a prepared statement to the victims:
"I am so sorry to what happened to you both on the night of September 11, 2014. I ask you now for your forgiveness and I hope that you someday will be able to provide it. ... Again, I apologize to you and your families. I wish you nothing but the best."
I’m sorry for “what happened” to you, not sorry for “what I did” to you.

Keep that in mind. That’s Kathryn Knott.

She's a sociopath and deserves more than she got. And I hope that her prison sentence will ruin her career in the health care industry. She's got not business working in that field with such a stunning lack of empathy and compassion.

So glad her decision to stand trial didn't go as she appeared to have expected.

I'm glad to see this case taken seriously.
Wish the other two had gotten the same treatment.

(PS - Bob, the politicians are headed to SC!
Watch out for low flying politicians!)

Obviously good news as far as it went. I hope she is beyond miserable every day behind bars. What a POS!

Yes, shed those croc tears all you can. 'Sorry' for her not having got away with it is nearer the truth.

I suspect KK is so sorry that the whole affair happened cos the result is she is to be incarcerated....probably only for 5 months cos she is white y'know! Let us hope the experience ends in an epiphany for KK

What goes around, comes around, especially when you're in the slammer.

Knott is a sociopath - she has no remorse for what she did, she only is upset about getting caught. She sees herself above the law and outside the reach of the law. And she isn't getting treatment for that in jail - I believe that she not going to prison, but instead will serve her sentence in the jail in Philadelphia. In other words while I think that lock up is great, she is going to be insolation because her father is law enforcement, and that puts her safety at risk, hence she won't be in the general population. And she's not going to change in lock up, and she isn't going to get any help. I don't think she can be redeemed, and I think we are going to hear of her exploits again. Because people like Knott do not change.
