Ex-Hartford Student Who Abused Roommate With Bodily Fluids Gets Probation

The teen was accused previous year of smearing bodily fluids on her former roommate's belongings after the woman posted a video on Facebook of Brochu snoring. If she completes those requirements and stays out of trouble, the charges of breach of peace and criminal mischief will be dismissed after two years. Brochu has been granted probation for her offences, and must perform an additional 200 hours of community service, with 50 of those hours being at a literacy organization, as well as another 50 at a social services group. The former roommate, who is white, put blood from a tampon on her then black roommate's backpack and boasted on social media of putting her toothbrush "where the sun doesn't shine".

Rowe attended the court hearing and did not oppose the probation program request Monday, saying she hoped Brochu would 'change her ways'.

On Monday, Brochu was given accelerated rehabilitation, a special form of probation that will make sure Brochu won't get a criminal record.

Brochu was expelled from the university after being arrested.

Brochu became infamous after writing an Instagram post where she admitted to doing a stealthy attack on her roommate.

Following the ruling, Brochu conveyed her apologies to Rowe via her lawyer.

In November, Brochu said in an interview she was not racist, only acted foolishly.

Hate crime charges were proposed by the NAACP, but Brochu avoided them.

Brochu's attorney, Tom Stevens, has said Brochu and Rowe had a falling out and Brochu's actions were not racially motivated. According to Rowe, her post traumatic stress has affected her educational goals.

Although Williams found that Brochu was deserving the second chance offered by accelerated rehabilitation, he expressed astonishment at the pettiness of the disagreements that started the feud, such as the dorm room temperature. "There's a system for white people and there's a system for black people", he said, according to the Hartford Courtant's report. Friends, potential employers and even potential romantic partners will learn of Brochu's conduct with a simple Internet search, the judge said.

Outside the courthouse, state NAACP President Scot X. Esdaile reiterated that Brochu should have been charged with a hate crime and basically stated what most of us are thinking about this lame slap on the wrist she received. "That's what we face every day".
