Brianna Brochu confessed on Instagram to poisoning and infecting her roommate, Chennel “Jazzy” Rowe at the University of Hartford in Connecticut. Brochu was arrested and expelled for this and originally faced 6-12 months of jail time with a bail of $1K.
Brochu took to Instagram, boasting about her actions, stating “Finally did it yo girl got rid of her roommate!! After 1 ½ month of spitting in her coconut oil, putting moldy clam dip in her lotions … putting her toothbrush places where the sun doesn’t shine, and so much more I can finally say goodbye [to] Jamaican Barbie.”
After the incident went viral, the public grew in outrage that Brianna was to receive what they felt to be unfair punishment and that she should get harsher sentencing.
