Update: The Troubling Brooke Skylar Richardson Case
Brooke recently shared her biggest regret in a new interview with Cosmopolitan. What do you think of her sentencing?
WLWT reports that a judge in Ohio has ended Brooke Skylar Richardson's probation, 14 months after she was sentenced to 3 years of supervised release.
Yesterday Judge Donald Oda of Warren County cited that there was no reason to invest the time and resources to continue to monitor Richardson.
Said Oda, "Probation is not punishment, probation is not rehabilitation, probation is the opportunity to demonstrate why it is that the state imprisoned term of 12 months in prison should not be imposed and if you can follow the rules, I don't impose that sentence. There is nothing in the three years that I have been supervising you that has happened that leads me to believe that you won't follow those rules or that you're going to commit any crimes in the future, so I am going to terminate your probation effective today."
For her part Richardson apologized, and revealed that during her probation she had undergone mental health treatment. Said Richardson, "I'm working to get that better... I suffer a lot in silence and I do show remorse and I am very sorry... I just want to show that I can be a normal person again. I just want to make everything right again as much as I can."
