Urbana woman gets probation in attack on brother's ex

URBANA — An Urbana woman who admitted she took part in an attack on her brother's ex-girlfriend in April has been sentenced to 30 months of probation.

In return for Prisca Foster's guilty plea Tuesday to aggravated battery, Assistant State's Attorney Bridget Schott agreed to dismiss more serious charges of home invasion and robbery against the 23-year-old woman, whose last known address was in the 2400 block of East Oregon Street.

Foster admitted that on April 29, while on the stairwell of an apartment in the 1300 block of North Lincoln Avenue, she struck her brother's ex-girlfriend, who lived at the complex.

The woman sustained two black eyes and a bloody nose in a fight with Foster and her brother, Paul Foster, 22, according to Schott. Charges alleging the brother and sister forcibly took money from the woman were dismissed.

Prisca Foster received the same sentence that her brother received when he pleaded guilty Friday before Judge Tom Difanis: probation, 50 hours of public service, anger-management counseling and no contact with the victim.

Schott said Prisca Foster had no prior convictions.
