A judge convicted a young Euclid mother of hitting two teens with her car after a fight at a Sunoco gas station.

Jennifer Sternbach was found guilty of two counts of felonious assault and one count of child endangering.

On August 14, 2012, Sternbach, 20, struck two teenage boys with her vehicle while at the Sunoco gas station on Lee Road in Cleveland Heights.

Sternbach got into a verbal altercation with the teens while standing outside of her vehicle. The suspect then got into her vehicle and proceeded to accelerate towards the victims, striking them.

Sternbach then drove off northbound on Lee Road. During this incident, the suspect had her two-year-old daughter in the vehicle with her.

Sternbach will be back in court on May 30 for sentencing. She will likely get probation.
