30 Year Old Vivian Vosburg, Mother of Girl Accused of Bullying Florida Teen (Rebecca Sedwick) Arrested on Child Abuse & Child Neglect Charges
ALL IN THE FAMILY … Does it really surprise anyone that a 14 year old bully didn’t learn her her sadistic ways from somewhere?
30 year old Vivian Vosburg, the stepmother of the 14 year old teen, Guadalupe Shaw, who has been accused of bulling Rebecca Sedwick has been arrested on an unrelated child abuse and child neglect charges. Polk County Sheriff’s Office says Vivian Vosburg is charged with two counts of child abuse with bodily harm and four counts of child neglect. Vosburg is the stepmother of Guadalupe Shaw, the 14 year old, remorseless teen who has been charged with felony aggravated stalking who cyber-bullied 12 year old Rebecca Sedwick of Lakeland, FL to commit suicide.
The mother of one of the girls facing charges in connection to the bullying suicide of Rebecca Sedwick has been arrested herself.
The Polk County Sheriff’s Office says 30-year-old Vivian Vosburg is charged with two counts of child abuse with bodily harm and four counts of child neglect.
Sheriff Grady Judd showed cell phone video in a press conference Friday afternoon depicting Vosburg viciously punching two children involved in a fight inside of a residence. The video was originally uploaded on Facebook.

The mother of a 14-year-old Florida girl accused of bullying a classmate who later committed suicide is facing child abuse and child neglect charges in a separate case, authorities said Friday.
Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said 30-year-old Vivian Vosburg was arrested Friday afternoon.
The move came as investigators are still looking into what exactly drove 12-year-old Rebecca Sedwick to her suicide last month, a case in which Vosburg’s daughter was charged with aggravated stalking. Police have also arrested a 12-year-old girl.
Judd made it clear that Vosburg’s charges are not related to those against the teenagers.
Vosburg’s arrest came after authorities received tips from residents that she might have been involved in beating children, Judd said. A minute-long video clip Judd played at a Friday press conference showed a woman, whom he identified as Vosburg, punching two boys with her fist while shouting profanities. The video had been posted to the Internet.
