Winter Haven, Florida (CNN) — The attorney for a 14-year-old Florida girl charged with aggravated stalking that allegedly led to the suicide of a 12-year-old classmate told CNN that her client isn’t responsible for a controversial Facebook post that led to the suspect’s arrest.
Police on Monday arrested two girls, ages 14 and 12, in connection with the death of Rebecca Sedwick, who jumped from the top of an abandoned concrete plant last month.
Authorities said the 14-year-old girl was Rebecca’s chief tormenter, and the girl posted a taunting message Saturday on the Internet about what had happened.
“Yes IK I bullied REBECCA nd she killed her self but IDGAF,” the Facebook post read. Grady Judd, sheriff of Polk County, Florida, said the online vernacular meant “I don’t give a (expletive).”
The 14-year-old’s lawyer, Andrea DeMichael, told CNN her client “says that this is not as clear cut as it seems.”
The girl denies she stalked Rebecca and she hasn’t accessed Facebook recently, DeMichael said.
