Sedgwick, 14 at the time of her death, was repeatedly harassed in person and online, particularly by Shaw and Roman, Sheriff Grady Judd has claimed when he had the teens arrested.

He said that her death was attributed to the bullying and the “disturbing environment” in which Sedgwick grew up.

Roman’s mother hired Tot Mom Casey Anthony’s high-profile attorney Jose Baez to help the family fight the charges.

Radar uncovered a series of shocking videos that Roman posted online, claiming that she too was bullied and that a family member had “touched” her.

“I want my life to end,” she wrote on a note pad in one video. “I hate myself.”

Roman was also kicked out of her school following the arrest and was forbidden from having access to computers or the internet.

The charges against Shaw still stand
