SHOTLIST:ABC POOL -- AP CLIENTS ONLYWinter Haven, Florida -- October 15, 20131. SOUNDBITE: Sheriff Grady Judd, Polk County Florida:But the reason we rushed these arrests quicker than we wanted to is because of this post, (shot pans to still of Facebook post with girl's name blurred out. The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes) "yes, I bullied Rebecca and she killed herself, but I don't give a," and you can add the last word yourself.2. SOUNDBITE: Sheriff Grady Judd, Polk County Florida partially covered by still of Facebook post):This all began during 2012, during the school year. We know on one occasion Rebecca ran away from home in November. We know in December of '12, Trisha, who is Rebecca's mother noticed that Rebecca had cuts on her wrist. This was a result of that, Rebecca said she was cutting herself because she was being bullied and she was under a lot of stress.3. SOUNDBITE: Sheriff Grady Judd, Polk County Florida:There were statements such as, "you should drink bleach and die. Nobody likes you. I don't like you. Nobody likes you."4. SOUNDBITE: Sheriff Grady Judd, Polk County Florida (covered by AP PHOTO -- AP CLIENTS ONLY -- Lakeland, Florida -- September 10, 2013 -- STILL: Police at cement plant where Rebecca Sedwick committed suicide)And about two o'clock in the morning of the 10th of September, that's when one of our sergeants and one of our detectives found Rebecca at the base of an abandoned cement plant. Where she had obviously jumped to her death.5. SOUNDBITE: Sheriff Grady Judd, Polk County Florida (covered by AP PHOTO -- AP CLIENTS ONLY -- Bartow, Florida -- September 12, 2013 -- Sedwick's casket being carried out of funeral home)Rebecca's mother went, I believe, above and beyond to create interventions. There were several interventions created for Rebecca. The one issue that Rebecca's mom said to us was, "I just didn't want to have her not like me so I continued to give her access to her cellphone so she could talk to her friends." And as a result the bullies now cyberbullied her because she was no longer at school for them to get to her face to face.STORYLINE: WINTER HAVEN, Fla. (AP) _ Two girls were arrested in a Florida bullying case after one of them admitted online over the weekend that she harassed a 12-year-old girl who killed herself last month, a sheriff said Tuesday. Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said they arrested a 14-year-old girl because they were worried she would continue cyberbullying other girls. The girl is accused of threatening to beat up 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick, telling her "to drink bleach and die" and saying she should kill herself, the sheriff said. After nearly a year of bullying by as many as 15 girls, authorities said Rebecca climbed a tower at an abandoned concrete plant Sept. 9 and hurled herself to her death. Judd said police arrested the 14-year-old girl after she posted Saturday on Facebook that she bullied Rebecca and she didn't care. "We decided that we can't leave her out there. Who else is she going to torment, who else is she going to harass?" Judd said. Police also arrested a 12-year-old girl who is accused of bullying Rebecca. Both have been charged with felony aggravated stalking. The sheriff's office identified the two girls, but The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles charged with crimes. Judd said the bullying began after the 14-year-old girl started dating a boy that Rebecca had been seeing. She "didn't like that and began to harass and ultimately torment Rebecca," Judd said. A man who answered the phone at the 14-year-old's Lakeland home said he was her father and told The Associated Press "none of it's true." "My daughter's a good girl and I'm 100 percent sure that whatever they're saying about my daughter is not true," he said. A message left at the 12-year-old girl's home was not immediately returned. The girls were arrested Monday night and released to their parents' custody. They remain on home detention. The 12-year-old girl was Rebecca's former best friend, but the sheriff said the 14-year-old girl turned her against Rebecca. Other girls also stopped being friends with Rebecca in fear of being bullied, the sheriff said. Judd said he was upset the girls still had access to social networks after Rebecca's suicide. "If we can find any charges we can bring against their parents, we will," Judd said. Judd said neither girl's parents wanted to bring their daughters to the sheriff's office, so detectives went to their homes and arrested them. Judd said the 14-year-old was "very cold, had no emotion at all upon her arrest."
