WINTER HAVEN, FL – The parents of a girl accused of bullying her classmate until she killed herself said she’s been framed. Two girls, ages 12 and 14, are charged with aggravated stalking in the death of 12 year old Rebecca Sedwick. The parents of one of the suspects said their daughter is innocent. They also think it’s unfair the sheriff is considering charging them.

The mother of one of the alleged bullies, who goes by “Vivian,” said, “I don’t think it’s fair for me and my husband to be you know, punished for something that they’re saying that my daughter did.”

The girl’s father says he took away her computer the night she reportedly wrote a nasty message about Sedwick’s suicide. He says that’s proof his daughter is being framed.
