SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The family of a girl who committed suicide after she was sexually assaulted and a photo of the act was shared in text messages say they are outraged by what they see as a refusal to take responsibility by the three boys arrested in the attack.
In addition, Lisa Pott, the girl's stepmother, said Monday the boys were sober when the assault happened.
She says that makes what they did cold and calculated.
Audrie Pott's father, mother and step-mother made their first public comments about their daughter's death and the events leading to it during an interview with Fox News.
Audrie's father, Larry Pott, says he is astounded that defense lawyers for the three have said there is no link between the sharing of the humiliating photo and his daughter's decision to end her life.
