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

A white former college student accused of placing bodily fluids on her Black roommate's belongings has the support of the roommate who she secretly harassed. Since Brochu's deed was listed as a misdemeanor, her court record could be wiped clean if she completes 200 hours of community service and two years of probation.

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'.

The roommate, Chennel Rowe, did not oppose the probation request, saying she hoped Brochu would "change her ways", according to the Boston Globe via the AP.

Brochu, who was expelled from the university, was charged by West Hartford police with breach of peace and criminal mischief.

"While Brochu said she made up most of the claims in the Instagram posts in an attempt to "'appear amusing, '" she admitted to licking and transferring period blood onto Rowe's possessions. She is required not to have any contact with Rowe and must have a mental health evaluation.

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

"I can't move against Grindelwald; it has to be you", Albus Dumbledore ( Jude Law ) tells Newt ( Eddie Redmayne ) ominously. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald will be released on November 16, 2018 .

Brochu's attorney, Tom Stevens, has said Brochu and Rowe had a falling out and Brochu's actions were not racially motivated.

Rowe told police that Brochu "generally ignored her and treated her as a ghost", according to the warrant for Brochu's arrest.

Brochu's lawyer Thomas Stevens, apologized on Brochu's behalf and told the court he directed her not to apologize sooner out of fear it may result in a civil litigation. He said a day seated in a courtroom would help Brochu get a sense of the problems and challenges people are forced to overcome each day.

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.

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 about the case, which the charges made against Brochu will possibly still follow her into the future.
