No details of the incident have been released, but lawyer Jimmy Turk implied that it was something that could have been prosecuted in court, but the Commonwealth chose not to.
“The commonwealth’s attorney wouldn’t touch this with a 10-foot pole,” Turk told Bitter. “I feel very confident in telling you that under no circumstances would a prosecutor even remotely consider anything that these allegations involve. Not at all.”
Turk blasted Virginia Tech for the decision.
“I don’t’ mind telling you, this is an absolutely tragic decision from Virginia Tech,” he said. “I think it’s completely unwarranted and is just against any sense of an application of common sense at all to what they found him responsible for. I just think it’s a very reckless and very cavalier decision.”
He might even go so far as to recommend that Reavis take legal action.
“My recommendation for him is to not sit back idly and let anybody walk over him like the university has done under these circumstances,” Turk said. “It’s very, very tragic. And it’s just wrong.”
