One new article link has been added to our Related News page. BBC News published an article titled Florida ‘bullying death’ charges dropped.

Stalking charges have been dropped against two teenage girls in connection with the alleged bullying of another Florida girl who took her own life.

The two girls, aged 12 and 14, are said to have hounded Rebecca Sedwick online for a year.

A lawyer for the 12-year-old has demanded an apology from Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd for the arrest.

But Sheriff Judd said he did not have any regrets and that the girls will now receive “the services they need”.

“Our goal is that these kids never bully anyone again, never torment anyone again,” he said.

The girls were arrested a month after Rebecca, 12, jumped to her death from a tower at an abandoned concrete plant on 9 September.
