LOUISVILLE, Ky. Two Catholic school athletes who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 16-year-old told police they did it because they thought it would be "funny," according to court records released under a Jefferson County judge's order.
Both teens, who were 16 at the time of the assault, said in interviews with a Louisville Metro Police detective before their guilty pleas that they also took explicit pictures of Savannah Dietrich with their cellphones while she was intoxicated.The February police interviews are among hundreds of pages of documents released under Chief District Court Judge Angela McCormick Bisig's ruling this week that they should be open to the public.
In another ruling Friday, Bisig said Dietrich does not have legal standing to remove the county attorney's office from the case though she can raise concerns about the plea agreement her assailants received.
After Dietrich initially complained about the plea deal the two teens received, Paul Richwalsky, chief prosecutor in the juvenile court division of the county attorney's office, told her "get over it and see a therapist. The jail was for 'real' rapists, murderers and robbers," according to an affidavit released Thursday.
