Florida sheriff charges 2 minors in bullying death of Rebecca Sedgewick
October 15, 2013 (WLS) -- A Florida sheriff is sending a message to the parents of young bullies: if you don't discipline your children -- he'll do it for you.
This comes after he arrested two girls for taunting a girl who killed herself.
The Polk County Sheriff's office charged a 14-year-old and 12-year-old with felony aggravated stalking.
The girls allegedly "terrorized" 12-year-old Rebecca Sedgewick, who committed suicide last month.
The sheriff said the tipping point for the arrests was a comment allegedly posted online by one of the suspects.
"Yes, I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself but i don't give a, and you can add the last word yourself," said Sheriff Grady Judd, of Polk County, Florida.
One of the girls charged remains in jail. The other was released to her parents.
