Lunchroom lady Brooke Wilson-Johnson paid $1 each to three students to beat up a 9-year-old fourth-grader after he insulted her.

The 19-year-old former lunchroom lady in Grand Rapids, Mich., pleaded guilty and on Monday was led away to Kent County Jail to serve the remaining six days of her seven-day sentence for having been convicted of the misdemeanor of aiding and abetting delinquent acts, MLive.com reported. Johnson was also fined $1,125 and put on probation for 12 months.

"What makes your case unique is, of course, you are entrusted with the care of other people's children and that is significant," Kent County District Judge Donald Passenger told Wilson-Johnson during the sentencing. "In this case, the conduct is particularly egregious, and I think you get that with hindsight."

"I think seven days in jail is probably enough to have the impact that we want," Passenger concluded.

The incident occurred on Oct. 7, 2013, when Johnson offered $1 to three students to beat up a 9-year-old, after the victim had apparently failed to follow the lunch lady's instructions and called her a "pregnant b----."

According to Grand Rapids Schools public safety office records, the victim was pushed, thrown from his chair, and had food taken, MLive.com reported.

The students involved in the attack were two 9-year-old boys and a 10-year-old girl. All three students reportedly admitted to school officials that Johnson had paid them $1 each to carry out the assault.

The victim, who was not seriously injured in the attack, was not present in court during the sentencing, however his family was.

"I believe this will teach her a lesson," Stacy McLain, the victim's mother, told MLive.com. "I would have been happier if she was also required to take parenting and anger management classes because people need more than punishment."

Johnson, who did not make a statement at the sentencing, was sentenced under the Holmes Youthful Trainee Act which is designed to provide a second chance to offenders between 17 to 20 years of age, the Detroit Free Press reported.

According to Johnson's attorney Charles Boekeloo, so long as the former lunch lady successfully completes her probation without incident and pays off her fine in full, the conviction charge will be dropped and her records sealed.
