After a court hearing Aug. 29, Savannah Dietrich, who tweeted details of the case, including the names of the teens who molested her, was spared imprisonment for contempt. The judge instead unsealed the records in the case.
The Louisville Courier-Journal said the 17-year-old and her parents gave the newspaper permission to use her name.
On June 26, Jefferson County District Judge Dee McDonald told Dietrich and her family, the teenage defendants and their families and the lawyers they were not to discuss the case outside the courtroom with anyone: "Everything that happened regarding this incident happened when these men were under the age of 18, they both are now. ... I don't expect anyone, anyone, to be speaking about the incident to anyone for any reason. Any other questions?"
Dietrich was digitally molested after passing out at a party. She learned the details of what happened because her attackers posted pictures on the Internet.
She said she decided to go public via Twitter because she believed her assailants did not get severe enough punishment.
