The Florida teen beaten in an "animalistic attack" filmed for YouTube will be homeschooled for the duration of her high school career, MyFOXTampaBay.com reports.
Victoria Lindsay, 16, of Mulberry, Fla., will be taught at home until she finishes high school and will miss the coming prom, the station reports. She is still having trouble with her hearing and sight since the March 30 attack.
Seven juveniles remained in detention Wednesday. They along with one adult have been charged in connection with the beating of the Mulberry High School student.
Mercades Nichols, 17, Brittini Hardcastle, 17, and Britney Mayes, 17, face charges of felonious battery, false imprisonment and kidnapping in connection with the attack. Cara Murphy, 16, Kayla Hassell, 15, April Cooper, 14, Zachary Ashley, 17, and Stephen Schumaker, 18, face charges of felonious battery and false imprisonment.
A Polk County judge issued a gag order Wednesday in the case, after parents of some of the teens and Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd appeared on national TV shows discussing the case this week.
Judge J. Michael McCarthy was critical of the sheriff's decision to distribute part of the video, which has now been viewed widely on national TV and the Internet.
Judd issued a statement saying he'll appeal the judge's ruling.
Police said Lindsay was attacked on March 30 by six teenage girls when she arrived at a friend's home.
One of the girls struck her on the head several times and then slammed Lindsay's head into a wall, knocking her unconscious, according to an arrest report.
Later, according to a clip of the video that was released by the Polk County Sheriff's Office, the teens can be seen blocking a door and hitting her.
Two males, Ashley and Schumaker, allegedly acted as lookouts, police said.
"It's heartbreaking, really, to see that kids would do something like that to each other," Mulberry High School Principal George Hatch told MyFOXTampaBay.com.
While the beatings took place more than a week ago, Victoria's parents — Patrick and Talisa Lindsay — said their daughter remains scared for her life.
"When you see your daughter, who's not striking back to defend herself, and someone keeps coming at you like that. It's just, it's a horrible thing," Talisa Lindsay told the station.
