HARTLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -

A 14-year-old girl charged in juvenile court with an attack on a fellow Michigan high school student that was recorded on video and posted online has accepted a plea deal.
 
WHMI-FM and the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell report the girl faces an Aug. 23 hearing where she could be ordered held or placed on probation.
 
The girl initially was charged with aggravated assault in the March 12 altercation at Hartland High School, about 40 miles northwest of Detroit. Livingston County Prosecutor Bill Vailliencourt says the girl entered a guilty plea instead to assault and battery.
 
Police didn't seek charges against a male student who recorded the fight and posted the video. Authorities say the girl who was attacked had a broken nose.

In March FOX 2 spoke with Katya Adamkiewicz who suffered a broken nose in the attack. Listen to what she told reporter Andrea Isom about the fight and the video that was posted on Facebook.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
