LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A judge has sentenced two Louisville teenage boys to community service and sex offender treatment classes as part of a plea in a sexual attack their teenage victim publicized on Twitter in frustration over the deal.
The judge also ruled Friday after that the boys may seek to have the charges reduced when they are 21 years old, rather than having them automatically stricken from their records at that age.
The hearing was 17-year-old Savannah Dietrich's opportunity to publicly confront the two boys who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting her a year ago, then showing photos of the attack to classmates.
The juvenile case was opened to the public after Dietrich tweeted the names of her attackers and The Courier-Journal fought to have the courtroom opened and records released.
