WILLOWBROOK, California — A 30-year-old woman entered a no contest plea today for severely injuring a 91-year-old man with a brick in Willowbrook this summer, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Laquisha Jones of Los Angeles entered the plea to one count of elder abuse, infliction of injury.

Jones also admitted allegations of using a deadly and dangerous weapon, a brick, during the commission of the crime and that she inflicted great bodily injury upon the victim.

Jones also admitted that she was convicted in 2017 of making criminal threats.

Jones is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 28 and is facing 15 years in state prison.

On the evening of July 4, without provocation, Jones attacked the elderly man, who is now 92, with a brick near 118th and Robin streets in Willowbrook.
