Phoebe Prince, Two Massachusetts teens accused of harassing a classmate 15 years of age, who then hanged himself on Wednesday sentenced to one year of probation, the first of five planned plea deals in a case that attracted the world attention on bullying.
Prince Phoebe mother crying tenders was approved Wednesday in the Superior Court of New Hampshire, where Sean Narey Mulveyhill and Kayla, both 18, were convicted of involvement in the intimidation that preceded the suicide of Phoebe in January 2010.
Three other former South Hadley High School students are expected to accept a similar plea on Thursday in a juvenile court near, a few miles from her hometown about 100 miles west of Boston.
Prosecutors said Phoebe’s family accepted the plea deals to end the stress of protracted legal proceedings and, more importantly, because they require teens to admit that their threats, insults and slander oil on Irish ethnicity Phoebe were criminal acts.
Prosecutors have said the bullying anger stems from the four girls about relationships with Mulveyhill Phoebe, who was captain of the football team of the school, and a popular guy after he moved to South Hadley in Ireland, and prompted some Mulveyhill of girls to harangue Phoebe after her dumped.
“Today’s proceedings means that bullying and harassment are not tolerated in our schools and when you reach the level of criminal conduct, as it did in these two cases, the perpetrators are prosecuted,” said first assistant Northwest District Attorney Steven Gagne after Wednesday’s sentencing.
Mulveyhill, Narey and four other South Hadley teens were originally charged with violating the civil rights of Phoebe and other crimes, and Mulveyhill was charged with statutory rape for allegedly having sexual contact with underage girl.
On Wednesday, Mulveyhill pleaded guilty under plea agreement to a single count of misdemeanor harassment and other charges were dropped, including the charge of statutory rape.
