The 17-year-old Kentucky girl who had been facing contempt of court charges after she tweeted the names of her juvenile attackers, will not be charged.
Late Monday, lawyers for Dietrich's attackers withdrew their motion to have her held in contempt, after the story about the possible charges sparked outrage online.

Double Good !!!
Awesome!!! I don’t see how a judge could even remotely give such an order for someone that was found guilty. That judge needs off the bench.
the 2 perps have been outed all over the internet. prosecutor tried to protect them.
So the 17-year old girl passes out drunk.
These boys are creeps.
The criminal "justice" system has taught the boys what? Be more devious and don't take pictures next time?
What has "justice" taught her? Don't pass out drunk at the next party?
Courts cannot make this spoiled milk fresh again. Ever.
Better to out these deviants now than when they’re Jerry Sandusky’s age.
Quote of the day.
Well, that is really good advice for young ladies.
Another example of good advice. Teach boys not to rape. It used to be this sort of stuff didn’t have to be discussed.
This teaching may be necessary today, but oddly enough I don't recall my parents ever teaching it to me.
Taken for granted and never crossed my mind. Any more than they'd have felt they needed to teach me not to beat up young children.
No order was given - the attackers' lawyer made a motion, now withdrawn.
Whatever the case is, it backfired in a huge way on the defense. Had they not filed the motion regarding the tweet these two would have only gotten the local attention that was going to happen anyway. Now it's gone viral and they are all over the internet. Epic fail.
I had sisters. I was taught to respect women. I have only a daughter, but I taught her to demand respect.
I read the article and saw this as well. Alcohol abuse is stupid. One cannot defend herself if she is unconscious. I hope she learns from this unfortunate episode. She could have been abused far worse.
“The boys have yet to be sentenced for the August 2011 attack.”
And there’s the rub. Dollars to donuts the boys will walk because the judge will be getting “revenge” for ignoring the command of the court.
As of last night, searching for Austin Zehnder and Frey got under 700 hits. Now it's close to six thousand. The lawyers tried to purge the pictures from the Internet, but now their pics have been replicated internationally.
They are famous. Google either name and you get page after page of blog entries about their raping this girl. Everybody who has ever known them probably knows about it by now. Including every admissions officer at every college they've applied to.
At this point, it doesn't matter if they walk. When you google their names, the first several pages are about the rape. Every college admissions officer and every employer who googles their names from now on will see that they pleaded guilty. Who would want the potential liability associated with hiring them? Who would want them on their campus? They can forget about the comfortable middle-class life their parents had planned out for them.
Ah, but they did teach it to you. Respect for other people was trickle-irrigated into you without your even being aware of it.
