A Pakenham mother has been jailed for running down a 14 year old girl who fought with her daughter. 

34 year old Jennifer McKenzie was taken into custody yesterday after a Victorian County Court Judge dismissed her appeal against the three month sentence. The victim, now aged 16, spoke at the trial about how she still experiences pain from fractures she suffered to her arm and leg during the March 2016 incident, which occurred in Berwick.

Judge Jane Compton said the case was about young girls behaving badly, and ended with an adult behaving worse.
