Brianna Brochu, Charged With Harassing Ex-UHart Roommate, Gets Probation

A white former CT university student accused of smearing body fluids on her black roommate's belongings has been allowed into a probation program. The misdemeanor criminal mischief and breach of peace charges against Brochu could potentially be dropped after her probation is up, so long as she sticks to the conditions set by the court.

To meet the terms of her probation and have her charges against her dismissed, Brochu will have to perform 200 hours of community service and stay out of trouble for two years.

Brohchu was charged and expelled after she posted on Instagram about rubbing blood from used tampons on her roommate's backpack and sticking her toothbrush "where the sun doesn't shine".

Brianna Brochu was sentenced to probation that would allow her criminal record to be expunged, the Hartford Courant reported, prompting Chennel "Jazzy" Rowe to take to social media to speak on the decision.

Brochu is also required to have no contact with Rowe and undergo a mental health evaluation.

She admitted to licking her roommate's plate and silverware and the tampon claim, but she told police she lied about the rest on Instagram to "appear amusing".

Brochu, of Harwinton, had told police her actions were in retaliation for Rowe's "rude behavior" and Rowe posting videos of her sleeping and making fun of her snoring.

Civil rights advocates called for hate crime charges.

Brochu's lawyer apologized on her behalf and made it clear that Brochu's actions were not racially motivated.

"By giving her this second chance, I hope she will change her ways and finds love for all mankind no matter what race", Rowe said of her former roommate's accelerated rehabilitation. The post ended with Brochu calling Rowe a "Jamaican Barbie".

But state NAACP President Scot X. Esdaile told reporters outside the courtroom that he feels Brochu should have been charged with a hate crime.

Judge Omar Williams also thinks the public shame Brochu will experience is punishment in itself; stating that friends, potential employers and even romantic interests will all be able to find out about Brochu's conduct with a simple internet search. "There's a system for white people and there's a system for black people", he said, according to the Hartford Courtant's report. "That's what we face every day".
