Woman charged in curb stomp attack pleads guilty

Medford, Ore. — The third person involved in a brutal curb stomp attack in Central Point will spend more than a year behind bars.

Terri Huffman pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to felony assault and heroin charges. According to the Jackson County District Attorney’s office, Huffman directed two men to brutally beat a 25-year-old in connection with drugs.

In court Tuesday, Huffman denied any involvement and attributed her drug use to losing her home.

“When I lost my home, my world spiraled,” Huffman told the court, “but I’m not a bad person. I never told anybody to hurt anybody.”

The DA’s office says surveillance video shows Huffman kicking the victim while he lay unconscious. She was sentenced to 13 months in prison with 3 years post-prison supervision.
