- Jacobs suffered non-life threating injuries but did undergo surgery after allegedly being stabbed in both arms twice by Yaya.
- According to Hollywoodlife.com, Yaya was arrested and released the same day and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, which is a second-degree felony in Texas. A person with this charge could face 2 to 20 years in jail or depending on the situation may be eligible for only probation.
Criminal defense attorney Sharen H. Ghatan. Esq. told Hollywoodlife.com, Yay “will likely face a state prison term but she will not be facing anywhere near 99 years. What seems more reasonable is that she will likely be exposed to somewhere between 2, 3, or 4 years. After all, no one has been killed, the victim is in stable condition and is very probably going to make a complete recovery.”
