Leveraging this strength, San José State recently became the first California State University campus to develop a campuswide diversity master plan.
SAN JOSE — One of the former San Jose State students accused of the racially tinged bullying of an African-American freshman who lived in his dormitory suite was dating an African-American female student at the time, his lawyer argued Wednesday as the hate crime trial wound down.
“It tells you Colin Warren isn’t racist,” lawyer Dek Ketchum told the jury of six men and six women during his closing argument.
He and Logan Beaschler, now 20, and Joseph “Bret” Bomgardner, 21, are accused of participating to various degrees in subjecting Donald Williams Jr., who was 17 in fall of 2013, to repeated abuse, including clamping a U-shaped bike lock around his neck and trying to do so a second time, calling him racially derogatory names, locking him in his room and bathroom, trying to lock him in a closet and displaying a Confederate flag.
The woman whom Warren dated testified she saw him about three to four times a week for four to five weeks.
His lawyer also said that Warren’s parents and high school counselor testified that he was not prejudiced.
