Katelyn Roman, 13, told NBC’s ‘Today’ she did not feel she did ‘anything  wrong’ related to the suicide of classmate Rebecca Sedwick. She was cleared  Wednesday of charges related to Sedwick’s suicide.

One of the two girls cleared of driving a 12-year-old Florida girl to  suicide says she doesn’t feel guilty about the teen’s death.

Katelyn Roman, 13, made the stunning admission on NBC’s “Today” show Thursday.

“No, I do not feel I did anything wrong,” said Katelyn, speaking publicly for  the first time.

On Wednesday aggravated stalking charges were  dropped against Katelyn and Guadalupe Shaw, 14.

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd had previously accused the pair of  bullying Rebecca  Sedwick so aggressively through social media that she jumped from a  concrete factory to her death.

Katelyn told “Today she took away an important lesson from the ordeal.

“I learned it’s not OK to bully. When you have a chance, stand up to  bullies,” she said.

Judd had taken the unusual and controversial measure of publicly identifying  both of the young girls and calling them “felons.”

He insisted Wednesday he had no regrets about naming them, and said he was  glad they would receive counseling and “never bully anyone again.”

Sedwick’s mother and police said that as many as 15 girls ganged up on the  12-year-old from Lakeland, Fla. nonstop — even after she transferred  schools.

During the October news conference in which Judd named the former suspects,  he said Shaw wrote to Sedwick on Facebook, “Drink bleach and die.”

He also said she wrote on the site, “Yes ik (I know) I bullied REBECCA and she  killed her self but IDGAF (I don’t give a f–k).”

Katelyn’s mother said the ordeal taken a toll.

“It’s been a horrible experience for me, my daughter and my whole family,”  said Roseanne Gill.

“This can happen to anyone. We have to watch our children’s Facebooks.”

Katelyn’s father said she was not guilty of Facebook posts and that his  daughter and Sedwick had only had one fight at school.

Now, Katelyn’s family is considering suing the Polk County Sheriff’s  Department.

“The family is extremely disturbed,” said the Roman family’s attorney, Jose  Baez. “That’s (a lawsuit) something we’re going to of course look  into.”
