LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Louisville teenager who tweeted the names of two boys who sexually assaulted her to protest their plea agreement says in court records the prosecutor told her to "let it go" after she complained about the deal.
The Courier-Journal (cjky.it/PuYUFn) on Thursday obtained newly released court records in the case of Savannah Dietrich, who defied an order not to discuss the court proceedings by tweeting the boys' names.
Since then, the newspaper successfully sought to open the case, which had been closed because it was held in juvenile court.
Dietrich says in an affidavit that when she confronted prosecutor Paul Richwalsky after the plea, he told to "get over it and see a therapist."
Richwalsky denied the allegations, saying they are "preposterous."
