    Teen charged in Mass. bullying case heads to trial

    NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (AP) -- A Massachusetts judge on Tuesday scheduled a March trial for a teenager accused of having sexual contact with a younger classmate, who hanged herself after what prosecutors call relentless bullying from the teen's ex-girlfriend and four other students.

    Austin Renaud, 18, is charged with the statutory rape of Phoebe Prince, a South Hadley High School freshman who was 15 when she committed suicide in January. Renaud has pleaded not guilty.

    Prince's death, one of several high-profile suicides related to bullying, sparked national discussions about the need to intervene against bullying, protect students and punish their alleged tormenters.

    Renaud is not charged with bullying Prince. His attorney said Renaud considered Prince a friend, and that he tried in vain to help as the bullying escalated before her suicide.

    He cut off contact with his ex-girlfriend and the other students long ago, attorney Terrence Dunphy said.

    "As you can see, he was not one of the ones involved with the stalking, the bullying, the abuse or anything else," Dunphy said, describing Renaud as a quiet and respectful teen.

    Renaud did not comment at Tuesday's hearing in Hampshire Superior Court. Prince's aunt also attended and left afterward without commenting.

    Prosecutors charged all six teens after an investigation into Prince's suicide, which they say occurred after a particularly brutal day of bullying that followed months of verbal abuse and intimidation.

    Five South Hadley students are charged with civil rights violations resulting in bodily injury. They are: Flannery Mullins, Sharon Velazquez and Ashley Longe, who were all 16; and Kayla Narey and her on-and-off boyfriend, Sean Mulveyhill, who were both 17.

    Prosecutors say the girls were angry about Prince's relationships with Mulveyhill and Renaud. Renaud had dated Mullins before meeting Prince, a recent immigrant from Ireland.

    1. Phoebe Prince suicide and bullying fallout:

    When a 15-year-old South Hadley High School freshman hanged herself in her home on Jan. 14, the community was predictably distraught. No one could have predicted, however, that Phoebe Prince would become the face of an international campaign against bullying.
