Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd confirmed reports late Wednesday night that the charges of aggravated stalking have been dropped.

Attorney Jose Baez, the attorney for Katelyn Roman, said the state had dropped the felony charge against her and Guadalupe Shaw.

“We are very pleased that the state attorney’s office … has decided to do the right thing,” Baez said, adding that he was convinced that his client had never done anything criminal.

Baez said the girl was deeply affected by Sedwick’s death and had been bullied herself.

Sedwick jumped from a concrete factory to her death after several girls harassed and tormented the girl, according to her mother and earlier police reports.

“Our goal was to create an intervention. Our goal was to bring this conflict to the proper authorities to make sure it was dealt with. And it was dealt with,” said Judd.

“My client and her family are relieved by the state attorney’s decision today,” attorney Andrea DeMichael said.”She is hopeful about her future and is attempting to turn this tragic event into something positive.”
