A woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for viciously beating an elderly man with a brick in an unprovoked attack.
Los Angeles woman Laquisha Jones, 30, was sentenced on Thursday following her no contest plea to elder abuse in December.
A witness recorded video footage of Rodolfo Rodriguez, 91, as he sat dazed, his face bloodied, after being beaten.
The witness, Misbel Borjas, also took a photo of a woman with a brick in her hand with her child beside her as she yelled out.

Jones is due back in court on April 11 for a restitution hearing.
Prosecutors said she severely beat Rodriguez in the face with a brick on July 4 as the man was taking a walk.
They say Rodriguez, a Mexican national, did nothing to provoke the attack. He was hospitalized after sustaining a shattered jaw, several broken ribs and other injuries.
As part of the negotiated plea deal in December, a charge of attempted murder was dropped, according to Deputy District Attorney Frank Dunnick.
Jones also admitted to a special allegation that she used a dangerous weapon in the crime, and that she had a prior conviction for making criminal threats in 2017, the district attorney's office said.
Although a witness claimed that Jones had screamed 'go back to your country' while attacking Rodriguez, prosecutors did not pursue hate crime charges.
A GoFundMe account set up for the victim that hoped to raise $15,000 to pay for some of his medical expenses raised nearly $330,000.
Rodriguez, who now lives in Willowbrook, spoke to KCAL9 after Jones' sentencing and said that he was 'good and happy thanks to God.'
He said he understood the law but he believed his attacker should have only gotten two to three years for her crime.
