Campbell enters a guilty plea

January 17, 2007|From the Associated Press

Naomi Campbell pleaded guilty to misdemeanor assault Tuesday for hitting her maid with a cellphone over a pair of missing jeans.

"I threw a cellphone in the apartment. The cellphone hit Ana," Campbell told a New York judge. "This was an accident because I did not intend to hit her."

If convicted at trial, Campbell, who originally had been charged with second-degree felony assault, could have been sentenced to two to seven years in prison.

Campbell, 36, hit Ana Scolavino in the back of the head with the phone in the supermodel's Manhattan apartment last March. Scolavino was treated for a head injury.

In exchange for her guilty plea, Campbell must pay Scolavino's medical expenses of $363, do five days of community service and attend a two-day anger management program.
