The victim's families just got home from District Attorney Michael J. Violante and Assistant District Attorney Robert A. Zucco's office and he told them that he was thinking about (it hasn't been done yet) dropping the charges on the perps to a charge of forceable touching and hazing. We need everyone who is on the victim's side to write letters, call, or email the DA office and voice their opinion about how changing the charges to a lesser offense would be a terrible idea. If the perps get charged with forceable touching and hazing - they pretty much walk with a slap on the wrist and probation.
So we need your help to make sure the charges stick and changes are made to protect other sports players so that this doesn't happen again. PLEASE!!!

Thank you!

please disregard the post about sending letters for now - we have 2 weeks for the DA to make his decision, we are hoping that the charges stick - if we need to send letters we will do it after that - i will let you know.
