LAKELAND, Fla. (AP) — An attorney for a 12-year-old Florida girl charged in the bullying of a classmate who committed suicide says the sheriff who filed the charges is the bully in the case.
Jose Baez said Friday that Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd has been making the media rounds after filing the charge at the expense of his client.
Baez says his client, who is charged with stalking, is a child and that he's not going to allow the judicial system to bully her. Baez is best known for representing Casey Anthony during her 2011 murder trial.
Judd told Orlando television station WFTV that the evidence against Baez's client is clear.
The Lakeland girl and a 14-year-old schoolmate were arrested last week. Judd says they were primarily responsible for bullying 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick.
