Woman to spend only weekends in jail

Judge hears mercy plea from 25-year-old facing armed-robbery charge

(Continued)

But, the judge said, Mazac accepted responsibility for her role and has made “amazing efforts to turn your life around.”

He imposed the year sentence, but then suspended all but 22 days of it — four days she spent in custody after her arrest and another 18 days, to be served on weekends, at the South Bay House of Correction.

She’ll also be on probation for three years.

“This is a sentence dramatically less than the crime warrants,” said Lowy, who went on to warn Mazac that “you do not want to see yourself back here on a probation violation.”

Armed robbery, the charge for which she received probation, carries up to a life sentence.
