Savannah Dietrich, 17, was sexually assaulted last year.
So after the two boys who attacked her were offered what she considered a lenient plea bargain in exchange for pleading guilty, she called them out by name in a tweet:
There you go, lock me up. I'm not protecting anyone that made my life a living Hell.
The attorneys for her attackers wanted her held in contempt because they say she defied the confidentiality of a juvenile hearing. Just this morning, in fact, Dietrich was facing a potential jail sentence.
But after the global media got wind of her story, the boys' attorneys opted not to continue the contempt motion. David Mejia, an attorney for one of the teens explained:
What could contempt do now? Seems like a rather useless exercise doesn't it?
