Assault Victim Won’t Face Fine, Jail for Tweeting Names
The original court order had forbidden all parties in the case to discuss it, writes Courier-Journal reporter Jason Riley.
Savannah, however, tweeted the boys’ names and criticized the justice system in frustration over what she viewed as a lenient plea bargain for the two teens who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting her and circulating pictures of the incident.
“There you go, lock me up,” she tweeted. “I’m not protecting anyone that made my life a living Hell.”
Defense attorney Mejia said his client was accused of things he didn’t do and that his privacy had been “trampled.”
Dietrich says she was sexually assaulted by two teen boys she knew in August 2011 after drinking at a gathering and becoming unconscious. Months later she learned that pictures of the incident had been taken and shared with others.
