Dean Attridge comments to Divinity community

Dean Harold Attridge released the following comments to the YDS community regarding the arrest of a first year student:  “We at YDS are deeply distressed by the news of the arrest of one of our students on serious charges, and my thoughts and prayers are with all parties involved. The Divinity School is a tight-knit and caring community, and so this affects each and every one of us. We trust that the appropriate authorities will conduct a thorough investigation that will result in a full measure of justice under very difficult circumstances. As always in our legal system, the accused student is presumed innocent until proven guilty.”
