Outgoing Northwestern District Attorney Elizabeth D. Scheibel has said that she does not regret prosecuting the six South Hadley students accused in the Phoebe Prince suicide case.

The Boston Herald asked her what she hoped was the outcome of these trials which will take place after she steps down from the position on January 5.

Scheibel said, “Accountability. What is most important is to take responsibility for one’s actions.”

After January 5, she will be replaced by Hampshire Register of Probate, David Sullivan. Scheibel said that it is standard procedure that the incoming district attorney would review pending cases, but she could not say if he would pursue the case.

In March 2010, Scheibel charged the six high school students with various crimes.

Sean Mulveyhill (17) was charged with alleged statutory rape, violation of civil rights, criminal harassment and disturbance of a school assembly. Austin Renaud (18) was also charged with alleged statutory rape. Kayla Narey (17) will stand trial for alleged violation of civil rights, criminal harassment and disturbance of a school assembly. Ashley Longe (16)  for alleged violation of civil rights with bodily injury resulting. Flannery Mullins (16)  and Sharon Chanon Velazquez (16) alleged violation of civil rights and stalking.

The outgoing deputy assigned to the South Hadley cause has offered to remain on as a special prosecutor. Scheibel said “We want the transition to be seamless.”
