The woman accusing police of using 'too much force' was back in court Friday to face theft charges in that incident. Brandie Redell was in court to face the consequences for two separate theft charges.    

The judge sentenced her to two years in prison and about $1200 in fines.  

Surrounded by friends and supporters, Redell listened as the judge sentenced her to her third stint in prison.  

Redell had previously pled guilty to both incidents, one in February for the arrest that was caught on camera and the other in April. Her charge of assault causing injury to an officer was dropped.  

She's had nine convictions since 2001, six were felonies and five of them were for theft-related charges. With her criminal history against her, Redell brought several character witnesses who asked for leniency in her sentencing. Friends spoke on her behalf about the progress she's made since her last crime.  

As for Redell, she said she accepts full responsibility for her actions and is working to improve., but it wasn't enough. 

"I understand your point, but I don't think that's the correct sentence," Judge Douglas McDonald said, "You need to know whenever you do this, there's going to be a price to be paid." 

Redell and her representatives tell us they don't believe today's outcome will affect the civil rights lawsuit they plan to file in federal court. They plan to file in two weeks.  

The judge in the case says Redell will most likely only serve a few months to a year of her sentence. She was ordered to turn herself in to be taken into custody September 10th.
