Charges Dropped Against 2 FL Teens After Bullying Led to Classmate's Suicide

Charges have been dropped against two Florida teenagers who were arrested after the tragic suicide of a classmate.

The girls were suspected of participating in a harsh bullying campaign against 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick, who jumped to her death from an abandoned building.

Guadalupe Shaw, 14, and Katelyn Roman, 12, had been charged with felony aggravated stalking. 

Jose Baez, the attorney for Roman, had previously spoken out, saying the charges brought by Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd were baseless and would never hold up in court.

Baez said yesterday he never saw any evidence that his client committed a criminal act, and has threatened to bring a lawsuit against Judd.

Judd, however, is standing by his decision to bring charges, saying the girls hopefully learned a lesson about bullying.
