LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A judge has sentenced two teenage boys to community service and sex offender treatment as part of a plea deal in a sexual assault case where the victim publicized their names on Twitter.

Savannah Dietrich posted the boys' names on Twitter because she was frustrated with the initial plea deal in June. She did so despite a judge's order not to talk about the case.

The judge altered the deal slightly Friday, saying the boys may seek to have the sexual assault charges reduced when they are 21. The previous agreement expunged their record automatically before they turned 20.

Dietrich says she is satisfied with the new deal but doubts her attackers understand the impact of their actions.

The boys, then 16 years old, assaulted Dietrich in August 2011.
