Hammond

Woman admits role in attack at bar

A Hammond woman was placed on probation for two years for criminal recklessness that left the victim permanently scarred.

Christina Adelaida Flores, 27, admitted she and Sophia Silva agreed to physically attack Ramona Stampley on Aug. 12 at the Anchor Inn, 6712 Calumet Ave., Hammond. Flores and Silva grabbed Stampley’s hair, beat her and struck her with an object in the forehead. The wound above the victim’s eyebrow required eight stitches. In addition, she suffered a sprained finger and redness and scratches to her face.

Flores must obtain alcohol treatment and her GED while she is on probation. She faced two to eight years on the original battery charge.

Silva, 26, of Lansing, Ill., pleaded guilty in January. Her sentencing hearing is April 22 before Lake Superior Court Judge Salvador Vasquez.
