A woman will serve jail time after being sentenced for a hospital assault.
DeeDee Johnson was sentenced to five years probation and 60 days in jail after being sentenced by Judge Hutchison at Raleigh County Court this Friday morning. Johnson had pleaded guilty in May to unlawful wounding. Authorities say she was visiting a patient at Beckley ARH Hospital in May of last year when she began arguing with the woman's family member. Witnesses say the fight started because Johnson was angry that the family didn't want her there.
