Wollner initially pleaded not guilty but changed her plea to guilty in February. As part of the plea agreement, she was sentenced to three years electronic home detention.

Aleah went missing last July and still has not been found. A month after she disappeared, Wollner, her girlfriend and Aleah's cousin, Donna Robertson, and James Wilson Jr. were arrested after police got a hold of a video of the beating.

All three were facing battery and criminal confinement charges in the case.
