SARATOGA (KCBS) — The family of the Saratoga High School student who committed suicide after an alleged sexual assault expressed anger and resentment over a statement issued by the school district.
Attorney Robert Allard, who is representing Audrie Pott’s family, said the Los Gatos-Saratoga Union High School District is denying responsibility for her suicide after the alleged assault. Three teens have been charged in the case, two of them were on the school’s football team.
Allard said it’s clear from the four-page statement issued by the school district that they are more focused on liability concerns and protecting their image than in taking responsibility. He also called the statement slap in the family’s face.
