As a family, we are deeply disturbed by the horrific behaviors that have taken place against our son. Our immediate focus is his protection.
We have taken a stand on this matter. Our response prompted the community to be alerted of the appalling conduct of the students involved. We appreciate the outpouring of support from our family, community and the efforts put forth by the Black Student Union of San Jose State University.
We are hopeful the District Attorney's office will take the necessary measures to ensure justice will prevail for our son.
Due to the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation, we are requesting privacy.
To protect his identity and not complicate the investigation, no further comments will be made at this time.
