The little girl, who is now 3-years-old, spent more than three weeks in Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, undergoing at least two surgeries to remove a bullet and bullet fragments from her face. Her mother said she will need plastic surgery when she gets older, but is continuing to recover.
"She's pretty well now. She's Ok,' the woman said.
She also expressed some disappointed with Scott's potential prison sentence, noting that she knew drug dealers serving more than 10 years behind bars.
"Ten year's isn't enough," she said.
Scott's defense attorney, Earl Key, said the plea deal worked for both his client and prosecutors.
"This case was no slam dunk," Key said. "There was risk for them and risk for us."
As part of the deal, Scott gave up his rights to appeal in the case, except for a decision that Murphy made removing his first lawyer. Defense attorney Angelo Musitano was removed from the case because Murphy ruled that he had a "conflict of interest."
Musitano had previously represented the mother of Scott's victim in a number of criminal matters.
Key said that if Scott is successful on his appeal, that could overturn his guilty plea.
"I believe that's Mr. Musitano's understanding (that a successful appeal would overturn the guilty plea)," Key said.
