Probation for student who rubbed tampon blood on Jamaican's bag

Brianna Brochu the former University of Hartford student accused of harassing her roommate by smearing bodily fluid on the roommate's backpack and tampering with other items cries in court Monday

Furthermore, the former CT student admitted to putting foul clam dip into Rowe's body lotions, spitting in the coconut oil she was using.

A white former CT university student accused of smearing body fluids on her black roommate's belongings has been allowed into a probation program.

It seems like that's the only real punishment she'll get.

Police said the former University of Hartford student wrote on Instagram in October about rubbing used tampons on her roommate's backpack and putting her roommate's toothbrush 'where the sun doesn't shine'. According to Rowe, her post traumatic stress has affected her educational goals. Doctors could not find diagnose her illness and she was prescribed antibiotics.

At Brochu's trial, Rowe told Judge Omar Williams that she didn't oppose Brochu's accelerated rehabilitation request. The antagonistic attitude worsened to such an extent that Rowe chose to switch rooms.

She said she lied in the Instagram post in an attempt to 'appear amusing, ' a police report said.


Outside court, state NAACP President Scot X. Esdaile repeated his view that Brochu should have been charged with a hate crime.

Civil rights advocates pushed for hate crimes charges in the case, but prosecutors said they lacked sufficient evidence to prove the harassment was racially motivated.

Stevens said Brochu is angry with herself for letting communication with Rowe break down and for reacting in anger to a perceived slight. Outside the courthouse, he said, "These were two students who were placed together. who didn't like each other. and it escalated".

If Brochu avoids any other legal drama, her criminal charges will be dismissed after 2 years; although, she is required to never contact Rowe again, and must submit to a mental health evaluation. However, she was kicked out of the University of Hartford before being charged by West Hartford police for breach of peace and criminal mischief, the charges that may be cleared as part of her criminal record. According to the Boston Globe, Brochu referred to Rowe as "Jamaican Barbie" and Rowe said she had "throat pain" after Brochu's tampering.

And the price Brochu pays for her conduct will last long after her court case ends, Williams said.

This week 18-year-old Brianna Brochu learned white privilege has it's perks, particularly when it comes to the criminal justice system.
