ST. LOUIS — A 24-year-old woman faces life in prison after being convicted of throwing acid during a street fight.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that a St. Louis jury on Friday found Mallory Rush guilty of three counts of first-degree assault and three counts of armed criminal action. They found her not guilty of a fourth count of first-degree assault and armed criminal action.
Rush was involved in a street fight in 2006 that involved as many as 30 people. Three victims testified they saw Rush throw a drain clearing substance called Liquid Fire into the crowd.
Prosecutors say several of the victims were permanently disfigured with burns to the face, arms and legs. Rush denied throwing the acid.
Sentencing is scheduled for April 3.
