After assaulting a fellow student last year, a group of three Chinese teenagers studying in the US received prison sentences on Wednesday ranging from 6 to 13 years.

The main incident took place last year on March 30 in Rowland Heights, California, where then-18-year-old Yiran "Camellia" Liu was stripped, beaten and tortured by her schoolmates.


The suspected gang ringleader Yunyao "Helen" Zhai received the harshest sentence at 13 years, followed by Yuhan "Coco" Yang with 10 years, while Xinlei "John" Zhang was treated to a lighter sentence of 6 years for his less active role in the attack, reports the LA Times.

The three had previously served a year in jail after bail was set at $3 million each on June 18. Both the attorneys of Yang and Zhai denied that their clients were leaders in the attack, and requested psychologists for the women.


Yang's statement warned fellow Chinese families against sending their children to live alone overseas to be "parachute kids":

This is a wakeup call for the 'parachute kid' syndrome. Parents in China are well-meaning and send their kids thousands of miles away with no supervision and too much freedom. That is a formula for disaster.

They deserve it!  Hope when they finally leave prison they would have learned a life's lesson, never bully again!  And their parents hopefully have learned a lesson too, never to bring up kids as little emperors or empresses who can't tell right from wrong!

It is good that one of the perps had some to say to all the parents of "parachute children": if yo ...

'Chinese parents seem to shove their responsibility away from them in the hope that their child gets a public education from a boarding school'

Chinese parents expect the teachers to play nanny to their children; they abdicate their child raising responsibility and shove it to the teachers!
