SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - A Northern California sheriff's office has arrested three 16-year-old boys on accusations that they sexually battered a 15-year-old girl who hanged herself eight days after the attack last fall.

Santa Clara County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Jose Cardoza says the teens were arrested Thursday, two at Saratoga High School and a third at Christopher High School in Gilroy.

The victim's family attorney Robert Allard says students shared photos of the attack on cellphones. He says the alleged victim, Audrey Pott, posted on Facebook that her life was "ruined" and that she was going through her "worst day ever" shortly before she committed suicide.

The family isn't making statements to the media and has requested privacy until a planned news conference Tuesday.
