An Audubon woman who aided in an assault near the Rowan University campus last summer, was sentenced to five years in state prison and ordered to pay $100,000 for the victim's medical bills.
Nineteen-year-old Savannah R. Tatton was chastised for her “especially cruel and depraved” role in the August 2012 incident, said Gloucester County Superior Court Judge M. Christine Allen-Jackson in a statement provided by the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office on Friday.
Tatton, who pleaded guilty on June 25, admitted that she held the victim, another woman, down while 28-year-old codefendant Heather Seehousz beat her unconscious with a wine bottle. The two then left the victim on the street.
They were charged with robbery as well as aggravated assault in the incident.
Seehousz has already been admitted to the Gloucester County Drug Court program, and Allen-Jackson's order of restitution stipulates that the $100,000 may be collected from either or both of the codefendants.
