1 of 3 teen suspects acquitted in attack on gay classmate in Ky.

MCKEE, Ky. — A judge has acquitted an eastern Kentucky teenager on charges she attacked a gay classmate, but two other teens remain charged in the case.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported that District Judge Henria Bailey-Lewis handed down the verdict after a trial on Monday, Aug. 16. The girl’s name has not been released because she was younger than 18 when she was charged. Her attorney, Sharon K. Allen Gay, said she received permission to release information about the verdict.

The teen and two 18-year-old friends, Corinne Schwab and Ashley Sams, were charged in April with attempted murder and kidnapping in a case involving 18-year-old Cheyenne Williams. Schwab and Sams were set for trial on misdemeanor charges of fourth-degree assault and menacing on Thursday, Aug. 19.

Williams, who had been friends with the girls, said the three girls took her to a rural area of Jackson County, assaulted her and threatened to push her off a cliff and bash in her head with a rock
