SANDPOINT, Idaho (AP) -- A northern Idaho woman has filed a lawsuit against two teenage runaways from a northwestern Montana boarding school who brutally attacked her after she offered them a ride.
The Bonner County Daily Bee reports that Vera Gadman filed the lawsuit Oct. 3 in 1st District Court. She is seeking no less than $10,000 in damages for medical expenses, future lost earnings, and pain and suffering.
Marshall Owens Dittrich and Joseph John Martin, both 17 at the time of the July 2011 attack, were charged as adults and both pleaded guilty to battery with intent to commit robbery.
Martin in June was sentenced to up to 15 years in prison. Dittrich in September was sentenced to 10 years.
