SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The superintendent of a California school district attended by a 15-year-old girl who killed herself after photos surfaced online of a sexual attack she suffered at a party says the school will work to discourage cyberbullying and maintain a positive climate of respect.
Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District Superintendent Bob Mistele made the comments in a statement on Friday, saying the district's sympathies go out to all of the families affected by this "tragic situation."
The Santa Clara County Sheriff's office arrested three 16-year-old boys on Thursday on suspicion of sexual battery in the 2012 attack on Audrie Pott.
Pott's family says she was savagely assaulted while unconscious, and that people posted the photos online. Their daughter killed herself eight days after the attack.
