5 youths' bullying suicide case shelved

Carolina Picchio in death plunge in 2013

(ANSA) - Novara, December 19 - A case against five youths who allegedly cyberbullied a 14-year-old girl to suicide five years ago was shelved after a minors court said they had recognised the error of their ways on Wednesday.
    The five had been accused of persecutory acts, group sexual violence, underage pornography, possession of pornographic material, defamation, and death as a consequence of other crimes in the Novara suicide of Carolina Picchio.
    Picchio leapt to her death from her window in 2013 after becoming the victim of the alleged gang's cyberbullying with sex videos.
    Their alleged crimes will be expunged following the minors court's decision.
