Two teenagers have been convicted in connection with the suicide of Phoebe Prince who hanged herself after months of relentless bullying.
Sean Mulveyhill and Kayla Narey, both 18, pleaded guilty to the criminal harassment of Phoebe who was just 15 when she died.
She had recently moved to Massachusetts from Ireland and briefly dated Mulveyhill.
They are the only two of the six teenagers who were charged in connection with Phoebe's bullying-related suicide at South Hadley High school.

It’s at least something.
Will this stay on their record though? Past eighteen? Then of course, there is the fact that their names and faces will be all over the place so it’s not like an employer won’t find out about them.
Did I read the article correctly? They got 100 hours of community service to help other kids?! They could have made them clean up a dog park or SOMETHING!
I guess it's not profitable (i.e., PC) for the DA to go in public claiming ‘hate crimes’ and how they will go for the jugular in court, etc.
Nope, no kudos from al sharpton or the msm when a European is wronged.
Absurdly light punishment for actions that were vicious, deliberate and caused the suicide of a young girl. The message: bullying is no big deal...even if the victim commits suicide. If that happens, the cops get involved and you have to go to court, just look sad, say the right stuff - and this is crucial - if you’re ‘white’, make certain the victim is, too. You see, in liberal la-la land, only straight, white people are considered fair game for bullying. Even when it drives a sensitive young girl to take her own life to escape the bullying. So what? it wasn’t, like, a hate crime or anything. Right? Right?
Just what did these “bullies” do?
That kid Sean Mulveyhill should be hung.
I’m normally not a big fan of lawyers, but I hope Phoebe Prince’s family hires the best lawyer out there and sues everyone involved.
They should. WOuld be nice if the Irish Mob were to pay the bullies a little visit.
You already got taken to the woodshed on this topic by someone who actually knows the issue. Yet, here you are again, you phony. Shame.
Let me preface my remarks by saying that I was bullied as a kid. A lot. Multiple years in multiple schools. I’m also a parent who’s been helping one of my kids deal with bullying.
There is so much on the death of Miss Prince that either hasn’t been reported, or has been reported entirely wrong. It’s become one of the liberal media’s pet.
Miss Prince’s death was a terrible, terrible waste of a beautiful girl who should have had a long, happy life ahead of her. The comments made about her and the way she was treated were wrong; the kids were wrong to do it. Being young doesn’t excuse it, nor does anything that Miss Prince may have done, BUT this whole bully-witchhunt is wrong, too. Miss Prince had serious mental problems and these kids just happened to be doing the wrong thing to a young woman already teetering on the brink. All of the adults concerned knew, or certainly should have known, that there was a problem. Some did something about it; others did not. The adults, not the kids, are to blame. But, no doubt, the adults can assuage their guilt by pointing fingers at the kids who, after all behaved like the immature kids they are/were.
