Aggravated Assault or Self Defense?
(2008-03-12)AMHERST, MA (wfcr) - Friends and supporters of former UMASS Amherst student Jason Vassell are staging a rally Wednesday. Vassell is facing charges of aggravated assault and attempted murder following an incident on campus February 3rd. His supporters say the charges are unfair, that he was defending himself, and they believe that Vassell himself is the victim of a hate crime. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
