Kudos! Sexual assault victim Savanna Dietrich – the seventeen year old victim who stood up against her attackers and the Kentucky courts system by publicly releasing the names of the two Lacrosse players who sexually molested her after she passed out at a party and documented their exploits with photos – has prevailed.
You may recall that attorney David Mejia, who represented one of the two teenage boys Austin Zehnder and Will Frey III involved in the case, had filed a motion to hold Dietrich in contempt of court for going against the imposed gag order and twitting the names after a plea deal was put on the table and accepted for the perverts.
Word late Monday afternoon was that the motion was being withdrawn, clearing Dietrich of any potential prosecution which could have seen the already victimized teen facing 180 days in jail and paying a $500 fine. (Ain’t that some shit?) With the motion now being formally withdrawn, Dietrich is free to publicly address her ordeal.
Let the chorus sing.
“What could contempt do now?” Mejia is quoted as stating to the Courier Journal.
Our sentiment exactly!
You should have abstained from overly attempting to protect the likes of someone who would engage in such acts from the get go… Cuz if they are doing this type of act as teens, what the hell will they be doing when their dumbasses get away with it and get to college?
Mejia further expresses his dismay at Dietrich’s actions and his discontent at his clients poor portrayal. And he ain’t to happy about folks worldwide – like us – publishing their names as the sickos they are.
His “privacy has been trampled. He’s accused of things he didn’t do. Anybody who looks at (the postings online) believes things about this kid that are false,” he states.
Hmmmm… Let us see about calling up a pity party for him tout suite.
We would expect Mejia to say nothing else – that is what he is getting paid for – but here is the thing – we ain’t buying it.
What we are doing is singing the real victims praise for having the conviction of standing up for herself against a system – and the likes of Mejia – that not only looked to protect her attackers but impose a gag order to bar her against from defending herself. Cuz kids will be kids – as the saying goes – but the actions of these two were not of kids, they were the actions of sexually sick individuals.
Now all that is left is having these two cowards being placed on a sex offender registry!
