Mother of child who shot teacher sentenced

Deja Taylor, the mother of the first-grade student who shot his teacher at a Newport News elementary school earlier this year, was sentenced to 21 months each in federal prison on two charges related to firearms paperwork.

She’ll serve the 21 months for each crime at the same time, or concurrently.

Taylor pleaded guilty in June to illegally obtaining and possessing a firearm and making a false statement on a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) form to purchase a firearm.

That was the gun her child later took to Richneck Elementary and used to shoot his teacher, Abby Zwerner.

Taylor still faces state charges next month. That sentence will begin after her federal sentence is up.
