Franklin County Prosecutor's Office Cuts Deal With Woman Charged During Riots
OCTOBER 7, 2021
One day in jail.
The price 24-year-old Billy Dynise Peebles paid for her role in a vicious mob attack that injured a man and destroyed his vehicle during the Summer Riots of 2020 in Columbus.
On September 30, Peebles pleaded guilty to criminal damaging and endangering, a first-degree misdemeanor that carries up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine. Franklin County Court of Common Pleas Judge Kim Brown sentenced Peebles to one day in jail which she already served in January.
A Franklin County grand jury indicted Peebles on aggravated riot, a fourth-degree felony that carries up to 18 months in prison and a $5,000 fine.
A Columbus Division of Police helicopter pilot recorded the June 11, 2020 incident. The disturbing video shows no fewer than two dozen people surround the car at the intersection of State Street and Fourth Street, pull the driver out of the vehicle and smash out its windows.
You see a woman, wearing a red hoodie, walk to her car, pull something out of the trunk, walk to the victim’s vehicle and, with the object she grabbed from the trunk, smashes out the front passenger’s window. Police later identified the woman as Billy Dynise Peebles.
