A 17-year-old Kentucky girl who defied a court order by tweeting the names of two teenagers who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting her won’t face a contempt charge.
David Mejia, an attorney for one of the accused boys, says the motion to hold 17-year-old Savannah Dietrich of Louisville in contempt was withdrawn Monday.
Mejia says the decision had nothing to do with public sentiment in the case, although an online petition campaign had garnered more than 62,000 signatures. He said there’s no need for the motion now that Dietrich spread word about the case over the Internet.
Victory against Victim Blaming!
So, I’m reblogging this because I’ve just seen info on this case without this update. So that people know this young woman will not be facing a contempt charge.
