Trio Held in Connection With Sexual Assault in Wake of Teen Girl’s Suicide


Three teenage boys are under arrest in connection with the alleged sexual assault of a 15-year-old California girl who later took her own life.

Attorney Robert Allard, who represents the girl’s family, says the teen committed suicide after photos of the alleged attack were published online.

“Based on what we know, she was unconscious, there were multiple boys in the room with her,” Allard said. “They did unimaginable things to her while she was unconscious.”

On Sept. 10, 2012, eight days after the alleged assault, the girl, Audrie Pott, committed suicide.

NBC News does’t normally identify victims of sexual assault or suicide, but the girl’s name has been used in this report with her parents’ permission. They are hoping the story will help prevent something like this from happening to anyone else.

    WTF is wrong with society (some)! We could blame TV/Hollywood (they are pretty #### ##), or we could blame their parents, but I think it goes beyond that. I think it is society as a whole. There are so many negative influences out there. Stephen Hawking is correct when he stated, “humans are doomed unless we leave Earth.”
