Woman in viral courtroom video gets 11 years for carjackings

April 10, 2018 - 7:26 AM

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. - A woman whose initial 20-year prison sentence for two carjackings went viral after her mother was seen wailing in a Florida courtroom has now been sentenced to 11 years.

The Daytona Beach News-Journal reported Monday that Circuit Judge Matt Foxman also gave 19-year-old Ky'Andrea Cook 20 years' probation, concurrent with her prison term.

Foxman sentenced Cook to 20 years last summer but allowed her to withdraw that plea and struck down the sentence, citing miscommunication between Cook and Assistant Public Defender Frank Scott.

Cook used a dating app to lure Perry Nida, who invited Immanuel Pursel. Cook's then-boyfriend, Kendrick Bass, is accused of shooting Pursel during a carjacking. He survived the shooting. Investigators said the pair committed another carjacking.

Cook agreed to co-operate with prosecutors in their case against Bass.
