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.
“No, I do not feel I did anything wrong,” said Katelyn, speaking publicly for the first time.
Rebecca Sedwick jumped from an abandoned cement factory in Lakeland, Fla., to her death in September.
On Wednesday aggravated stalking charges were dropped against Katelyn and Guadalupe Shaw, 14.
“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.”

Rebecca Sedwick’s mother, Tricia Norman, surrounded by attorneys including former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist. She has said she may sue the girls formerly accused of bullying her daughter to her death.
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).”

“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.”
