Felony stalking charges have been dropped against two Florida teens accused of bullying Rebecca Sedwick. The 12-year-old girl committed suicide in September.
“I do not feel I did anything wrong,” said Katelyn Roman, 13, on NBC’s Today show. Her former friend’s suicide taught her, “it’s not OK to bully and you should stand up … to bullying,” she added.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said the two accused teens agreed in juvenile court to undergo counseling as a condition of the charges being dropped.
“Our goal is that these kids never bully anyone again, never torment anyone again,” Judd said.
Jose Baez, a high-profile lawyer, threatened to sue the sheriff for filing charges against the girls.
