In September 2012, 15-year-old Audrie Pott hanged herself.  She was allegedly the victim of sexual abuse and rape at a party in Saratoga, California, on September 2nd.  Additional charges have been filed relating to her suicide, naming an additional contributor.

Audrie had passed out at a house party.  Three boys she had known for years undressed her, performed sexual acts with the unconscious girl, used markers to write explicit words on her naked body, took photos of their actions with their cell phones, and posted them on social media.

She confronted the boys, and posted her feelings.

“I have a reputation for a night I don’t even remember and the whole school knows,” she wrote in one Facebook message to a friend.

“I cried when I found out what they did,” she wrote in another.

Less than a week later she was dead.

Recently Audrie’s family added a 15-year-old girl to the lawsuit filed against the three boys, and an adult couple whose home had been used for the party.  Audrie’s parents claimed the girl encouraged the boys “to expose and/or photograph and/or draw on Audrie’s body,” according to the amended lawsuit.

The girl, identified as ‘Jane C’ is accused of conspiracy in the sexual assault.  She is accused of ‘zipping up Audrie’s shorts, covering her with a blanket, and leaving her alone after the incident.

Days after the party Audrie witnessed a group of students at school huddling around a cellphone viewing at least one picture of the assault.

The party took place at the home of Michael Penuen and Sheila Penuen, who went out of town, leaving their daughter alone.  She told her parents that she was staying with Audrie.  Instead, several teens gathered at the home where alcohol was consumed.

Eight days after the party, Audrie asked to be picked up from school.  She was found later that day dead by hanging.

Audrie’s parents claimed Jane C “took actions to facilitate the acts described” at the party where the alleged sex assault happened and “aided, abetted and/or encouraged said acts by…being present in the room” while Audrie’s body was exposed, photographed or drawn upon.

The suit further accused Jane C. of “lying to Audrie and others regarding the events that took place at the party and/or in the ensuing week in order to conceal the truth and/or her involvement and/or knowledge of those acts and/or in other respects as may be developed in investigation or discovery.”

The tragic death of a lovely, young woman, and the revelation of abhorrent acts by several of her classmates, has left a town divided and outraged.

Today another young woman was added to the lawsuit, claiming she was a contributor to the assault.

    To bad Audrie Pott kill her self BUT she and all women young or old need to learn there on this earth for a mans pleasure.
    Audrie got her self drunk and out of control. No charges should be file against any one who enjoy her.
    She was so cute any guy would enjoy her if they had the chance.
    Her parents are nothing more than blood suckers trying to profit off her death.
