Covered woman in France sentenced to 6 months in prison
A court in France's northern province of Lille sentenced a fully-covered 18-year-old woman to 6 months in prison on Oct.30 for refusing to present her identity card to police, reported AFP.
The woman, who wasn't identified in reports, refused to show her identity card to police, telling them she didn't have time before attempting to escape. The woman kicked police officers who followed and eventually caught her.
The woman was convicted of willful violence, outrage, rebellion and incitement to riot and was issued a sentence two times longer than expected. The prosecutor had originally demanded a 3 month prison sentence.
