Statement from President Charles Kupchella on sentencing in Rodriguez trial

This has been difficult for all of us, especially for Dru's family, and we are grateful to have one more chapter in this tragic episode over. We commend all of the law-enforcement officials involved and, indeed, all of the judicial system involved in bringing Alfonso Rodriguez to justice. Our thoughts and prayers have been with the Sjodin and Walker families throughout this long ordeal that began nearly three years ago. We all admire the dignity and grace they have shown. They will continue to be in our thoughts and prayers, which will also include the families and friends of Mindy Morgenstern.
