LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A 17-year-old Kentucky girl faces contempt charges for tweeting the two teens who sexually assaulted her.
Savannah Dietrich of Louisville told The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/NEcirr) she is frustrated by what she feels is a lenient plea bargain.
The boys' attorneys have asked a judge to hold Dietrich in contempt for violating the confidentiality of a juvenile hearing.
Contempt carries a possible sentence of 180 days in jail and a $500 fine.
Dietrich posted on Twitter that she was not going to protect people who made her life a "living Hell."
The Associated Press does not normally report the names of sexual assault victims, but Dietrich and her parents say they do not want to shield her identity and want her case to be public.
