I thought this was a great piece.

Two of the boys involved (who are both now 18 year-old adults) have been charged with distributing child pornography. One of them faces an additional charge of manufacturing child pornography.

Obviously this doesn't undo the injustice that was perpetrated against Rehtaeh, nor will it bring her back to life. But I certainly hope that this and the Steubenville prosecution will start to change the tide in our society. I sincerely hope that no girl will have to endure that again in my lifetime.
