Change of Plans in Suspension of Two UE Students
8/22/2012 (Updated 11:20:39 PM)There are new developments in the case of the two suspended UE students who were planning to go back to school in September.
--It looks like their return might not happen, after all.
Vincent Osborn and David Terwilliger were suspended for a year by the Union-Endicott School District, following accusations by other students that the boys threatened to bring guns to school.
On Tuesday, the District told the boys' lawyer, Ron Benjamin, that the boys could return to school if they promised to be behave. Earlier Wednesday, Benjamin thought the deal was still on. He told Fox 40 News:
"The fortunate part is that the school district has agreed that if the boys sign a contract saying that they'll behave, they may come back to school; that is the most important part at this time, to miss no school."
However, later in the day, Benjamin said he received a fax from the UE School District, saying that the boys would be allowed to return, but only if he drops his plan to appeal the district's original decision to suspend the boys.
At this point, Benjamin says the appeal is still on, because the reason for the suspensions were unfounded to begin with.
