A pregnant Jacquetta Simmons is now at a state prison.
The Batavia woman convicted of assaulting a Wal-Mart worker on Christmas Eve last year will remain there until she is transferred to a medical center to give birth to her child. She was about eight months pregnant at her sentencing earlier this month.
Simmons was being held in Genesee County Jail, but she was transferred to Bedford Hills Correctional Facility in WestchesterCounty.
There is no word from Simmons’s attorneys about what specific plans she made for the child.
The 27-year-old Simmons was sentenced to five years in state prison for second-degree assault for punching then-70-year-old Grace Suozzi after she asked Simmons for a sales receipt.
