This answer was rated:

My daughter was assaulted by 2 11 year old classmates. They were brought before a juvenile review board as an alternative to court. They had to admit guilt as a condition. The actions of the review board are confidential, so we don't know what if any conditions were handed down. My husband has told the story of what happened to my daughter, with names, to many people around town. Could we be sued for talking about the incident?

I am sorry to hear of this situation for your daughter.

As long as only the Facts are being told and there was no order by a court to not talk about any of the incidents, then while there can be a lawsuit - because people can sue for anything - I suggest there would not be a case that the courts would find any defamation. Defamation is the dissemination of lies as if they are true with an intent to harm someone's reputation
