College Student Receives "Special" Probation For Poisoning Roommate

College Student Receives

Brohchu was charged and expelled after she posted on Instagram about rubbing blood from used tampons on her roommate's backpack and sticking her toothbrush "where the sun doesn't shine".

Brochu was trying to force her roommate Chennell "Jazzy" Rowe out of their shared dorm.

Following Brochu's arrest, the NAACP hoped that ex-student would be charged with a hate crime; however, Brochu avoided that charge, and was instead charged with harassment.

Brochu boasted about her efforts on Instagram where she also referred to her as "Jamaican Barbie" after Rowe requested a different room.

Brochu is expected to perform 200 hours of community service which includes serving 50 hours at a literacy program and another 50 hours at a social services group.

Brochu, 18, was arrested in October for misdemeanor criminal mischief and breach of the peace after being expelled from The University of Hartford in CT over her abusive treatment of her roommate, whom she dubbed a 'Jamaican Barbie'. Further, Brochu must have no contact with Rowe and must submit to a mental-health evaluation.

A state judge on Monday, March 12, granted 18-year-old Brianna Brochu's request for a spot in an "accelerated rehabilitation" program, the Associated Press reported.

Stevens apologized on his client's behalf.

Not surprisingly, the NAACP and other civil rights advocates called for hate crime charges, but a prosecutor concluded there was no evidence of this. She said she lied in the Instagram post in an attempt to "appear amusing", a police report said.

'I don't understand why, which is why I think it's a whole racial/hate issue, ' she said in a Facebook video detailing the abuse.

"With the consequences she has endured ... death threats ... she knows she made a mistake", Steven said. According to Rowe, her post traumatic stress has affected her educational goals.

'This was two students who were placed together, I think randomly ... who didn't like each other, like has been happening since kids went to school and became roommates, ' Stevens said.

Brochu's family have not commented on her arrest. Friends, potential employers and even potential romantic partners will learn of Brochu's conduct with a simple Internet search, the judge said.

"The internet has a long memory and you will have to do a lot of good to live down these allegations", Williams said. The judge urged Brochu to embrace diversity and the opportunity it gives one to grow, to not waste her opportunity at a second chance and to move forward.

"There's a system for white people and there's a system for black people.That's what we face every day."
