Woman pleads guilty to punching reporter in face on live TV

21 July 2016, 10:07

Philadelphia — A woman who punched a Telemundo reporter in the face during a live TV broadcast in Philadelphia has apologized, and pleaded guilty to assault.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday that 38-year-old Waheedah Wilson told a municipal judge she's apologetic for bashing Iris Delgado's head and slapping her in the face June 8.

Wilson told the court, "You won't have to worry about me coming back in here for these problems."

She received a 60-day jail sentence but has only 19 days left to serve because she has been in jail since June. Wilson was unable to post 10 percent of her $25,000 bail to previously secure her release.

Telemundo said following the attack that it was unprovoked.

Delgado was in court Wednesday but did not speak.
