A court date was held Monday for the woman accused of assaulting an African American teen at a pool in Dorchester County.
The woman, was arrested back in June after police say she assaulted a teenager who was hanging out with his friends at a community pool.
It was then a police report stated the teen was staying with a family who was given access to the Reminisce community pool.
The victim told police the woman, identified as Stephanie Sebby-Strempel, told them they did not belong at the pool and had to leave. When they began to leave, she called them “punks” and used racial slurs. She was also seen on cellphone video punching the teen in the chest and hitting him in the face as he walked towards the exit.
Detectives with the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office later obtained a warrant for Sebby-Strempel’s arrest. When they arrived at her home, she physically resisted – pushed one detective into a wall and bit a second on the arm, breaking the skin.
An affidavit on Monday revealed Sebby-Strempel entered a guilty plea and was handed down a $1,000 fine.
The family of the victim, who was at Monday's hearing, told News 2 they felt the punishment was fair but did not provide any further comment.
Sebby-Stempel was not at Monday’s hearing. Her attorney said the other charges, possibly in relation to the assault on the officers, was dismissed.
