The student at De La Salle High School in Concord was arrested on Thursday after allegedly sexually assaulting a girl after a playoff game. On Friday, his father spoke with the East Bay Times, insisting that the interaction was consensual.
“He’s tall, dark and handsome; he plays for De La Salle. There’s a lot of girls that want to be with my son,” he said. “When young, fast girls see something they like, they go after it. ... She’s the one that basically chased my son down. They were just two teenagers having sex; they were just doing it at the wrong place at the wrong time.”
