Polk County, Florida — Two juveniles that were previously charged in the suicide death of Rebecca Sedwick have had the charges dropped. Attorney Jose Baez, the attorney that represented alleged murderer Casey Anthony also represented the youngest of the teens in the Sedwick case.
Attorney Baez fired off at Sheriff Grady Judd for releasing information and photos on the two juveniles that were previously charged as felons. Sheriff Judd fired back by saying, “As an attorney you should know the public record law, if you are charged with a felony, it is public record when you are a juvenile.” Adding, “A lot of what Attorney Baez said was bluster, and does not deserve a response.”
Sheriff Grady Judd said, “Let’s not lose sight of the fact that a 12-year-old girl is dead as the result of bullying.”
Rebecca Sedwick was only 12 when she jumped to her death following months of being battered and bullied by the two juveniles. The youngest of the two juveniles have shown remorse, said Judd. “Hopefully the oldest bully will get the counseling she needs and go on to be a productive member of society in her later years,” he added.
The family of Rebecca Sedwick is greatly disappointed in the outcome of this case and the public is outraged with the State Attorney’s Office as well as Jose Baez.
The oldest teens mom, Vivian Vosburg, 30, of 3143 Crystal Hills was arrested after a brutal video of her beating other children surfaced in October of 2013.
Both teens are said to be receiving counseling at this time.
